3.26/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Lovely light copper in color, very clear, with very slight carbonation, and a small, dense, and persistent off-white head. The lacing is, appropriately, Belgian in its form.

Aroma: Lightly toasted malts, slight caramel, and modest herbal hops comprise the aroma, which is simple, but pleasing.

Taste: Opens with a modest surge of earthy and herbal hops, these overshadow the rest of the taste throughout. Slight caramel and toasted grains soon follow the hops. There is a faint presence of bitter apple later in the taste. Finishes with a mild, lingering flourish of herbal hops, toasted grains, and caramel.

Mouth feel: A bit thin, with slightly sharp carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: Pleasant, an interesting change of pace, would be a pleasant beer for the cooler months, particularly overcast autumn days.

Presentation: Packaged in an eleven point two ounce brown glass Euro-style long-neck bottle, sealed with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

Serving type: bottle

3.31/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

33cl bottle with a BB date of 15 Oct. 2014.

Pour clear amber with waymore visible carbonation bubbles than average. Not surprisingly then, the head has very good retention.

Aroma: earthy (bristish) pilsner

Flavor: nicely balanced mix of bready malts and English hops.

Feel: lively carbonation; dry; medium-light body.

O: A Belgian ale leaning far towards an ESB or pilsner, with only a faint input from Belgian yeast.

Serving type: bottle
