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.

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.

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.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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!

France beer tour, #2
Poured chilled in small wine glass

A: dark blond color; good head, mix of bubble sizes;
S: slight yeast aroma, not all that inviting, like a (merely) strong lager
T: sweet lemon, banana, very light clove; strong Belgian-style yeast strain; complex and aggressive; it doesn't seem to me to be in style, but it has such teeth I have to give it props; very boozy, and obviously so

Wow, this is a doozy beer; drink at your own risk

3.2/5  rDev -12.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Pours a clear, golden color with a big head.

Smell: Malty, sweet and wheaty.

Taste: Definitely tastes like a Belgian Blonde Ale and has caramel notes to it as well as light spices and sugar. Light and bready.

Mouthfeel: Very smooth and creamy with balanced carbonation; crisp; medium-bodied.

Overall: I found this to be a very nice Belgian Ale. I don’t always like beers that fall under the Blonde category but this was very agreeable and easy to sip. It would be a nice compliment when paired with the right meal.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A-750ml opens with a pop and a wisp of gunsmoke. Pours straw yellow with 2 inches fo creamy eggshell white head. Leaves stringy lacing.

S-Hand soap, grapefruit rind, white pepper, clove and coriander.

T/M-Intense prickly carbonation really hurts the mouthfeel in a big way. That, combined with overwhelming citrus rind dry bitterness overshadows the already muted spiciness. The finish is sharp, with a burst of clove.
