We had this on-tap at moeder lambic fontainas. Served in a goblet.

Appearance: Pours a clear golden amber color with a half finger of off white head that fades to a small layer on top of the pour.

Smell: Herbal Belgian yeast with a slightly sweet malt note. There is a fruity undertone throughout.

Taste: Belgian yeast note is there, but it is dominated by the hop bitterness. The overall flavor is a bit watery. The finish is bitter.

Mouthfeel: The body is think with weak carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: Some decent flavor here but the balance is a bit off. Less bitterness would have been nice.

Ring lace after every sip. Some spots in between. Moderate head that shrinks to rim bubbles. The color is approaching polished copper.

Caramel aroma, but it's not sweet.

Starts with a mild pale malt sweetness, but slowly, a black pepper hop flavor takes over. The finish becomes quite bitter. Long aftertaste. Decent body with neutral carbonation.

On draft at Moeder Lambic Fontainas.

The beer is a dirty, hazy yellow color with a massive, white, soapy head that leaves ample lacing on the glass. The aroma brings yeast, banana, clove, light spice, slightly sweet malt. The flavor is a tad sharp with a nice bite from the hop character, finishing with a lingering malty sweetness. Thin and light, this beer is easy to drink. Complex, especially considering the 4% abv. Tasty beer, I would have this again.

On tap at ChurchKey in DC. From notes.

A - Poured cloudy and light golden with two fingers of white creamy head. Good lace rings and a film of retention.

S - Nice hops, Belgian yeast, orange. Nice.

T - Orange, nice intense hop profile, yeasty and grassy.

M - Good carbonation, light body, zippy finish with orange.

O/D - Pleasant stuff. Designed to be light but it has a nice flavour and the balance of the yeasty/Belgian and hop balance is cool.

Amber color, quite hazy appearance. Off-white foam, quite beautiful.
A good hop in the smell, fresh, with a malty background.
Malty starting taste, then a good herbal hop, fresh, very interesting.
Good finishing driness.
Very drinkable, with a quite persistent bitterness.
