Had a pint of this at the brewery.

A: Bright golden color with very little head on the pour. Little hazy in appearance.

S: Sweet. Belgian yeast smell

T: Belgian yeast, Lemon zest, some coriander

M: Silky, smooth. Very little carbonation.

Very drinkable Belgian Gold.

Even though I gave it a low score this beer grew on me a little as it warmed up. The smell is weak and bready- nothing impressive at all. The taste is surprisingly crisp and zesty. I enjoyed the feel a lot and was happy it was a little stronger. Overall a very average beer, but way way better than any macro lager.
