12 oz can. Pours golden with tall, long-lasting, fluffy white head. Aroma is of bready malt, piney hops, grass and lemon zest. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Grassy hops, pale malt, candy sugar and citrusy fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long and dry. Not everyone should brew Belgians.

From 07/30/13 notes. Had tihs on tap at Mug's Alehouse in Brooklyn. Served in a pint glass.

a - Pours a deep orange-brown color with one inch of off white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of rye, Belgian style yeast, spices, light citrus hops, oranges, fruity malts, and earthy notes. Nice nose, some citrus and Belgian yeast, with a good amount of spice as well. Definitely a Belgian influence on it.

t - Tastes of spices, Belgian yeast, pepper, cloves, light citrus, earthy notes, musty, pale malts, wheat, and grains. More spice and pepper, and less fruit and citrus than the nose. A big step down.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall I wasn't crazy about this one; I'd put it slightly below their normal pale ale, which I am also not crazy about, and way behind their rye and black pale ales. Probably wouldn't seek this one out.

07/11/13 On tap at Rattle N Hum NYC. As a big Belgian fan, I found this a bit lacking. Nice lacing which I believe is a hallmark of a well crafted brew, but it just lacked the punch & body that I relish.
