Had on tap at BXL cafe. Lovely orange hue capped by a soapy looking white head. Nose has light orange, coriander, and earthiness. Taste brings the addition of light biscuit. Bitterness is a bit cutting but enjoyable. Mouth is light bodied, does become dry. Yum.

Glass: pint

—Cuvée BXL is made specially by Brewery Ommegang for BXL East and BXL Café in NYC—

Burnt orange body topped off with half an inch of bubbly, white foam.

Orange peal and coriander leap out of a bed of lightly roasted grain. It's pleasant but not arresting.

Biscuit malt, orange peel, coriander, white pepper, light hop oils. The finish is grassy, dry, and clean, with a citrus kiss that lingers.

Medium to light-bodied with appropriately peppy carbonation.

Overall a solid house beer with some pleasant characteristics. The pepper and spices are not overdone, while the citrus comes across as refreshing rather than overly sour. In many ways, this is a beer that does a good job of not getting it wrong.

Would I get it again?:

Bottled: on-tap May 2011
