A- Tallboy pours into a goblet with a deep amber body and a thick and creamy white cap. Head shoots up to about two fingers high with very good retention leaving lace immediately in thick sheets.

S- Belgian yeast comes out immediately in the forefront with spicy phenolics and plenty of esters. Overall it has a very spicy and peppery farmhouse aroma. The hops a bit of an afterthought to the yeast here.

T- Most of the flavor profile comes down to the yeast as suggested in the aroma. Spicy, peppery and fruity overall yeast profile with pink pepper, coriander, slight stone fruit, apricot, white grape, juicy pear and whole grain yeasty bread. The hops overall seem to give off a soft stone fruit flavor for the most part like apricot with hints of easy going citrus, cooking herb and floral hops.

MF- Puffy and highly carbonated medium body. The texture is very fluffy and rather smooth and silky and it all ends with just a slight bit of herbal bitterness.

Not gonna turn any heads with the powdery hop bomb obsession of modern days but a well brewed Belgian with a moderate dose of hops is always welcome in my arsenal.

Lightly hazy darker gold color. Moderate head but it leaves several wide rings of lace.

Equal parts Belgian yeast and bittering hop. On subsequent smells I get a little pale dry malt.

The yeast is the most distinctive flavor providing the majority of the bitterness. Quite dry with little malt flavor. Longer aftertaste.

I join the top raters here to love this beer, enjoyed at Cindy's at Chicago Athletic association rooftop.
a) Pours a clear, golden beer with white head that settles fast and laces little.
s) Delicious, ample, classic Belgian yeast aroma with fruity notes and spice.
t) Builds from the aroma to add coriander, lemongrass, white pepper, cannabis and pine. Complex, refreshing, interesting.
f) Low carbonation with nice drying, clean finish, wine like.
o) Outstanding Chicago craft.
