3.08/5  rDev -13%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: Crystal clear. Well carbed. Straw gold color. 3 finger pillowy white head. Small tight bubbles. Creamy head. Looks great.

S: Belgian phenolics, banana, caramel, sweetness and fresh baked bread.

T: Rich creamy head was amazing. Then led to sweetness, caramel flavor, bread, some hop bitterness but more sweet. Lemon. Earthy, floral bitterness is at the end.

M: Creamy head is amazing. Rest of the beer is rather thin to medium. The residual malt sweetness lends to a little thicker mouthfeel.

O: I thought it was ok. Smell was better than the taste. Taste was only as good as the head. The rest of the beer had too much sweetness for me. I think this beer would do well to reduce the beta rest temperature or if they use decoction maybe pull a thinner portion of the mash...just a thought. Wouldn't be likely to buy from store.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Served into a medium glass from a 330ml bottle. There is a lot of foam, lacing, stays for a long time... The colour is amazing, is darket than a regular lager, is thick that's present. Taste delicious, very malty, honey straight away, sweet some lemon aftertaste, I can't describe that amount of shapes and surfaces on a drink. I makes me, I don't need more, maybe an hamder average but it stills ok is 6.6% wowww. Very drinkable beer with the propper belgian flavour and carbonation, never say no to this trendy choice!!! Njoy

Bottle from Harvest Market
Pours a crystal clear light golden color with a decent sized bubbly bone white head that slowly dissipates. Aromas of bready sweet pilsner with a touch of floral hops and a solid shot of pepper and yeasty esters. The flavor is rich and sweet with hints of orange and sweet bread. Peppery yeasty with a bit of spice rounds out the flavor quite nicely. Medium body with a spirited level of carbonation and a spicy bubbly mouthfeel. That is a pretty nice Belgian right there, I'm surprised I haven't tried this before.
