I poured this just okay beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer poured a nice head actually. The beer was a light amber kinda cloudy looking brew. The smell was like beer, or maybe fresh beer with a not too hoppy smell. The taste was just so so with a slight hop finish. Just nothing here great or really bad, but I will not buy again.

Came in a Beer of the Month club my fiance got me for Christmas. 26.6 IBUs. Hailing from Rock Island, IL. Pours a mahogany/amber, unfiltered goodness right here. Vinegar in the nose, some coriander, grass, floral notes as well. Taste very similar, but with more of the Belgium (yeast, perhaps?) coming through. Has kinda a wet wet/malt/sour mouthfeel that I feel would go great with fish and chips. Overall, I feel this beer beckons the old southern proper ways of life to the modern, international harmonization with it's Belgium influences. Definitely a beer I wouldn't mind at a tailgate or outdoor cocktail party of sorts.
