On-tap at Venice Ale House, Venice, CA

A: The beer is clear golden yellow in color and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that died down, leaving some patches of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of Belgian yeast are present in the nose along with notes of pale malts and hints of sweetness.
T: The taste is very much like the smell and has flavors of pale malts with strong notes of yeast, hints of sweetness and bits of alcohol.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit dry on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a good beer to sip. It isn't as dry as some of the other beers in the style and hides its alcohol rather well.
