Worth a try. I love the can, it had a nice appeal. I'm a fan of Belgian beers so I'm a little biased, but I like it a lot. Cheers

Impressive taste and flavors for such a low alcohol content - I would not believe 3.8 percent, except it is so stated on the label- : Masterpiece in my view. Tasted it first in a highly rated venue in the Boston area, one of the few beers they offer; good choice! Am surprised the existing BA score is so low, expect it to increase when this beer gets more popular, as it should.

12oz brown bottle

Served in an Allagash goblet

Pours a hazy pale golden color with a medium-sized spritzy snow white head.

Smells of dry hay, grain and citrus zip out of the gate vying to gain ground. When, from out of nowhere, smells of green wood, mowed lawn and spices roll in. They all cross the finish line together and in complete harmony.

This is a GREAT small beer to have on a hot day on the boat, at softball, on the beach or just lying around on the hammock in the shade, avoiding the heat.

Low alcohol/high flavor!
