had on tap at the Chickie and Pete's at PHL airport

a pale yellow color, soapy white head. aroma and taste is typical of a pale Belgian beer - fairly clean malt flavor, dominated by the Belgian yeast flavors - herbal and earthy. thin body, higher carbonation.

Caramel and pear fronted by Belgian yeast flavors and notes of potpourri. Has a snap of pink peppercorn in the finish. No crab spice flavors are apparent.

Overall
Mellow, yeast-fronted, and easy drinking BPA.

Light copper in color. The nose had slight pepper spice - like Old Bay. The flavor profile sort of tastes like a Belgian Ale but then again, not.

Not too sure what they were after here.

Not bad, on tap at Phillies game. BP special.
Aroma: old bay.
TASTE: very malty. Medium bitterness.

Great thirst quenching alternative to bud light. Go Phils."
