3.75/5 rDev +7.8%
Poured into a tulip glass
A - Very fast disappearing head. A thin small ring lingers. Nice color though with a steady carbonation.
S - Nice nose. A bit malty for the style. A range of esters balance it. Nearly no hop notes.
T - Very mild on the esters. Rather malty but balanced by the hops.
M - Very smooth and really approachable. Pleasant afternoon brew.
O - While not a top candidate for the style it is a very approachable and very pleasant easy afternoon brew. I would buy again but not going to seek it out.

Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small patches of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and a mild Belgian yeast aroma. Taste is much the same with light fruit and spice flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of 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 slightly above average beer that is drinkable but not a very good take on the style in my opinion.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a light copper color with just a smidge of white foam. Belgian yeast nose. taste is a fruity flavorful malt, with a dry finish. Subtle rye flavor deep down. Mild grtiness tat supports the mouthfeel. Nice peppy ale.
