Pours into a Duvel tulip glass a frothy, billowy head falls to rocky peaks. A great appearance that is a clear golden color. A ring appears with effervescent bubbles rising after some time.

The nose is fruity, combining a bit of spicy ale yeast, hops and roasted belgian malt.

The taste is nice and balanced between dry and fruity with a nice, subtle belgian yeast funk. A tang in the aftertaste lasts and lasts and is quite pleasant and refreshing.

Mouthfeel is light/medium with an appropriatly medium carbonation

I was impressed by the quality of this brew and happy to find the brewery after a bit of searching through the industrial park. The new guys on the block are very freindly and knowledgeable. The bartender was glad to share his beer knowledge and answer my many questions. Cheers Solemn Oath!

The Oubliette is a solid Begium style pale ale that poured a golden clear with white head that left a spotty lace. The scent carried citrus and that belgian wiff. The taste was a light crisp pale ale with spicey orange peel. The mouthfeel was light in body with good carbonation. Overall, a decent beer.
