16 oz. poured on tap at the brewery/restaurant into a wine glass.

No head presented, but a pretty nice body color, nearly clear with a great apricot orange glowing hue to it, and a faint white collar to accent.

Bouquet is quite closed. Virtually nothing going on here, after some time though some faint floral and honey character with some excessive swirling but really reaching for aromas here.

There's a small Lefe like sweetness hinting on first sip. Not very large alcohol rush or booze quality quite well subdued. Good balance of candy sweetness and honey and perhaps some faint peach. Quality mouthfeel and solid, but not much character or pizazz coming across.

Overall a well controlled large beer but comes off a bit ordinary and almost a bit simple. Perfectly fine drinkability wise.

On tap at Right Proper Brewing Company in Washington, DC.

Pours a hazy light golden-orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, honey, fruit, yeast, and spice aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, fruit, spice, and yeast flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice and yeast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Serving type: on tap.

On draft at the source.

Light golden body with a slight haze and a small, white head. Booze, green apples, Belgian yeast, Saaz hops. Mild sweetness, medium bodied finishing with a hint of candied fruit. Perhaps a distant note of peach? Regardless, solid beer.
