Funky as can be. Smelled almost moldy. Okay, but expected more

Pours a cloudy amber color with a thick foamy head. Head retention and lacing are both very good. Has a typical Belgian yeast, farmhouse aroma. Kind of oaky with some citrus aroma. Nice smooth taste all the way through. Bready with some farmhouse flavor and stronger, refreshing citrus taste at the end. The end is a little too oaky and astringent but good nonetheless.
