Certainly lacking originality, but a decently balanced and inexpensive brew.

Med thin body, slick and clean mouthfeel, decent carbonation. Sweet malt presence upfront with notes of candied orange, zesty herbal hops, and a light bitterness.
Notes of sweet apples, grain, and grassy hops throughout.

Abv is well hidden, reminiscent of Duvel but less bitter, carbonated, and dry...

750mL bottle into a tulip. Pours a clear golden color w/ a bright white fluffy head, sticky chunks of lace, steady carb.

Aroma is slightly grainy pale malt, Belgian yeast, subtle floral hops.

Taste is pale malt w/ a hint of crushed aspirin, some yeasty funk, green apple. Slightly unpleasant lingering aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is a little prickly and sharp up front - lacks the smoothness of most bottle-conditioned beers.

Unfortunately this is a one and done for me.

750 ml

A - Pours a light golden to straw color. Very clear, lightly bubbly . Head formation is huge, pearly white.

S - Strong yeast nose, very bready. Not very spicy, not much of the esters either.

T - Starts off very dry, somewhat biting. Mid-stream brings in some quality pilsner malt flavors and some fruity esters. Finishes with quite a bit more of those esters, but a underlying dry and bitterness grips the tongue.

M - Moderate body, strong carbonation. As mentioned above, the dryness grips your tongue. The top of my mouth tingles from the carbonation.

O/D - A decent but probably not truly remarkable Belgian. It certainly satisfies my ache for it however. Not very filling and the abv is manageable.

750ml bottle split into two large snifters

Pours pretty clear straw yellow with a nice looking head and lots of carbonation. Head lasts a long time. Smell is Belgian, light and grassy, a little funk, a little sour.

Taste is creamy, slightly sour, some lemony flavor, little or no bitterness, slightly strawy. Maybe a little tiny bit of banana. Sweet.

Mouthfeel is creamy and airy, fluffy. Overall, nice beer.

A 750 ml bottle, corked. The pink pig makes me wonder if it is not made by the delirium bunch.

Poured a very light clear yellow with whipped egg white head. Lots of carbonated bubbles as well.

Nose is slightly fruity with hints of spice and hops.

Taste is fruity and sweet with a good dose of subtle Belgian hops. It could use a little more body, but I hate to discount it because this really is a crisp and refreshing beer. Alcohol is warming but not in your face. I like this beer. Not sure why the ratings are low.

750mL brown glass cork and caged bottle purchased at Winooski Beverage Warehouse. No date.

Pours a crackly pale yellow with thin white head. Nose is a little floral and a little corn-husk-like. Palate is crisp and zippy with some pleasant bitterness. Floral, corn-husk, hay, preserved lemon, key lime essence. Short finish.

This is by no means a complex beer. However, it is doing the job that I think it was made for: refreshing me after working out in the garden. If you think of it as a peasant saison or something, it's not bad. But it's also not great.

Served in a snifter (Rince Cochon signature glass).

Appearance: Gold, body is full of bubbles and head is ridiculously over-sized on the first pour that it is scary (thick). Head is white rising to a notch over two fingers length.

Smell: Mild yeast, it is good but nothing to wow over.

Taste: Alright this beer isn't complex like some other BSPA I have had, but it is rather tasty. Lightly sweet and feel of the yeast.

Mouth: Definitely medium to heavy, slightly creamy with a almost a marzen feel to it.

Overall: Not bad beer, I really can't knock on it I wasn't sure what to expect when I first purchased it. You should be able to find this for 10 or less at your local guy. Salud!
