Picked this up a while ago at Transmitter as part of their first canning, finally getting around to it on this cloudy afternoon. Very Belgian taste and feel to this as this was pretty true to stylistic form, without a lot of alcohol to get in the way!

This had a nice pour to to it, with a radiant golden hue to it that was cloudy and sediment-free. Lots of bubbly head topped the liquid off as it quickly, and loudly, settled down. A ring of lacing with a few below it remained on the inside of my pint glass as I worked my way through this though most of the inside remained clean. Not a strong aroma to this as there was mostly yeast, followed by banana, clove, and pepper underneath that. Bubblegum and lemon came through in the taste although the yeast was still a bit too heavy for me. Nice addition of the Hallertau Blanc Hops to give this some body and pop although a citrus slickness stood out more to me once the liquid finally went down.

The can has the ABV as 5.8% although it's listed as a bit higher on here as the bottom said "DRINK AFTER" with 2/1/18 below that. While not their best, this was a nice beer from Transmitter that hit all the right notes with me while being easily enjoyable. So glad I didn't have a lug a big, heavy bottle of this home from there!

From the corked, caged 750 ml. bottle. Sampled on November 23, 2017.

Attractive hazy golden-yellow pour underneath a long lasting white foamy head that leaves significant lacing.

The aroma tends to jump out as more citrus and lemon-like with a slight wild ale character and sourdough bread under that.

The body is medium but fairly smooth.

The taste has a lemonzest character which I did not mind but I was hoping for something that was more toasty. Clean, fruity finish. Never had anything from this brewery until now.

On-tap 5/5/2017 at Pizza J’s in Providence, RI, served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color, with a large white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains Belgian yeast, grassy hops, citrus and light caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with a quick burst of grassy hops bitterness. Then some mildly sweet flavors of citrus and caramel come in. Some breadiness from Belgian yeast and a hearty but not too heavy malt character provide a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly bready.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while.

A very average brew. Tasted of lots of yeast and had very little flavor to it. It was nice to try something different, but would not seek this out again.
