4.4/5  rDev +20.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

I had this beer out of the bottle (no glass on hand), but what a sweet bottle it is! The only way it could be cooler is if it came in one of those oil can looking things. The smell is sweet grain tempered with spicy hop, and just a wisp of alcohol.

The bottle gives up a great, crisp, crackery grain flavor, that lifts up spicy hops in the backend. Very smooth. Gets a bit grassy with warmth. This is pretty much like if you took many of Hieleman's products, stripped them of their off- flavors, boosted the body, and bittered them a tad more artfully.

Mouthfeel is nice. Midwieght with plenty of carbonation but almost no sting. Drinkability is great, my only beef with this as a session beer is it is just a bit on the filling side.

This is a great product. It is an easy-drinking macro-style beer brewed with high-quality ingredients. A well-built beer, but still makes you kinda want a plastic cup and a cigarette.
