Best by 5/29/15.

Pours a clear gold with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, honey, spice, and Belgian yeast aromas. Taste is much the same with malt, spice, chalk, and Belgian yeast flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of yeast and spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with solid aromas and flavors for an American take on the style.

Serving type: bottle.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

A: Golden filtered with little carbonation, and a finger of off white head.

S: Belgian yeasts, slight smokiness, sweet, corn.

T: Belgian yeasts, slight smokiness, light sweetness, corn. Light fruitiness.

M: Medium light, slightly syrupy, medium low soda like carbonation.

O: An okay beer. As good as many Belgian versions I’ve tried. Got it at Earthfare, Asheville for $2.99 which I thought was a great deal for a 650 ml bottle.

Undated bottle at 40 degrees into snifter
Aroma of beer, think PBR
Head ridiculously small, ie 1 cm, white, fizzy, rapidly diminishing to < 2 mm broken layer
Lacing surprisingly good – nearly complete rings of small bubbles
Body light yellow, clear
Flavor spicy, slight malt; no alcohol, no malt, no diacetyl; as this warms, a spicier underlayer reveals itself
Palate light, watery, lively carbonation

Not unpleasant, but very little flavor. Watery, decent carbonation and appearance. Meh.
