8oz glass at the Double Mountain tap takeover at Beer Revolution YEG Oliver Square, a few days after the fact.

This beer appears a slightly hazy, medium golden yellow colour, with one finger of puffy, foamy, and somewhat chunky ecru head, which leaves some decent limestone grotto lace around the glass as it slowly sinks away.

It smells lightly of semi-sweet, gritty and grainy caramel malt, subtle Belgian yeasty notes, a muddled earthy fruitiness, and very tame leafy and floral noble hops. The taste is bready and doughy pale and caramel malt, a bit of buttery nuttiness, understated phenolic yeast, a still hard to parse light orchard fruitiness, and more plain leafy, floral, and faintly herbal green hoppiness.

The carbonation is fairly low-key in its innocuous frothiness, the body a meh middleweight, and smooth, I guess. It finishes off-dry, in a plain as a Belgian monk's robe manner.

In case it wasn't already patently clear leading up to this point, while I find no brewing errors in 'Falkor', beyond that, this just bores me, well, not quite to tears, but let's just say that I'm glad I'm not actually paying for this.
