2.64/5  rDev -15.7%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

On tap on Cincinnati.

White head. Slight hazed pale yellow in color.

First sip of this beer and I get a lot of spice. Coriander and cloves. A decent amount of wheat. Orange peel. Hint of lemon zest.

Mouthfeel: dry and crisp. Lighter bodied.

Overall, this was a fairly boring Belgian beer. Way to dry. Not very much flavor.

I went to the Rock Bottom in Cincinnati, though because it's a chain I am going to assume the beers carry over the same. I ordered a flight of six of their standard beers and as I tried each one I found that each was spot on to the style. The remarkable thing is how unremarkable the beers are. Don't get me wrong, they are well worth the try and certainly above average but they are produced for a mass market. So as lazy as it may be I am going to simply say that this beer was a text book example of the style without breaking out and setting itself above.
