4.1/5  rDev +2.2%

Poured from a 12 oz can into a matchy-matchy Brewer's Art goblet. Moderate hand. Best by 07/12/2014 stamped on the bottom.

A: Hazy, light-to-golden yellow with 1 finger of white head. Ok retention. Moderately heavy lacing.

S: Earthy fruit and light spice. Banana. Cardamom. Coriander. Lemon. Orange. Pale malt notes of grass, straw, bread. Vanilla. Very nice nose!

T: Fruit, earth and spice with a minimal sweetness rapidly carry into a nicely present hop bitterness that is more assertive than average for the style. Fairly dry finish. Touch of funkiness. Some bready malt breaks through. The complexity and intrigue of the scents are somewhat lost on the palate. Does improve as it warms. Slight alcohol.

M: Moderate carbonation with a certain creaminess. Moderate to light body. Smooth drinker for sure.

O: Solid brew in a can. Haven't had it on tap for a while - I should venture downtown and refresh my memory. Bonus points for locality. Just wish all the great smells made it onto my tongue.

Prost!

The beer has Belgian yeast character, breadiness, lemon peel, citrus, and some pepper.

The flavor follows of refreshing lemon, lemon peel, a bready body. The beer dries off of peppery spice and coriander. There's a lingering yeast note on the finish.

A well made Belgian brew that is packaged in a cool can with a fist.

12 oz can courtesy of mwrecording pours a hazed, light gold color with a large cap of dense white head. Awesome retention and lacing. A fine looking brew, a few floaties are the only detraction.

Nose is tropical fruit yeast, SmarTees candy and white bread. Smells like a pretty good BSPA.

Taste also shows alot of yeasty phenols - banana, papaya, pepper and cloves. The malt is light...maybe some biscuits and the hops have a nice little snap of bitterness on the back end. Mouthfeel is a little less lively than, say a Duvel, but it is hearty enough with a nice creaminess. Easy to drink Belgian style brew...one of the better American made versions...and in a can!

Picked up a six pack for $10 after liking the beer I split with cousin. Good looking and smelling beer with even better taste. Very easy to drink and tasty, excellent value due to reasonable cost, for the cost you will not find better of this type. Will certainly continue to buy.

Revisited my review when having the beer again, and yes, right on. For a beer that you can find for $9.99 a six this is an absolutely awesome beer. Will be a regular in my fridge for sharing with those who want to experience a Belgian.
