Good friend brought a growler to the weekly hot dog fest. While I am not a Belgian fan..this was a solid beer and would recommend it. The beer poured a clear golden with thin no head and no lace. The scent carries typical Belgian flare with coriander spice. The taste is also typical of most Belgians but this is very well balanced with decent spice. The mouthfeel is medium in body with smooth carbonation. Overall the beer is solid for any Belgian fan.

Lots of banana notes. The booze is masked very well

Pretty unique flavor. To me it taste like a Belgo-Pils. Kinda funky and sweet.
