Tried on tap at the brewery in Seattle.

Pours a very pale yellow colour with a clear and light body. Head is a faint ring of white white that doesn't leave any lace. It looks decent, but dull as anything.

Light lemony hints on the nose suggest a touch of mild hoppiness. Some rind characters come through but not much else. Pretty light overall.

Very light entry, with some citrus characters coming through mid-palate. Touch of seltzer water. Finish is pleasantly mellow, however, melding the dryness on the finish with a touch of almost Belgian roundness. Feel is light and fluffy, but ultimately empty.

It's clear, light and very drinkable. No, it's not going to make you redefine your vision of craft beer, but it's solid enough.

The bar I had this at had this beer listed as a "Belgian Lager". I'm not sure what to list this as, stylistically, and the breweries website offered no help. Please add an update if you have more info.

Served in straight pint glass. Poured a clean, clear, pale straw yellow color with over an inch of white head that had good retention and lacing.

There was a floral/spice note that I couldn't put my finder on at the front of the aroma. That was supported by some hops upfront and a solid grain base. On the tongue the beer didn't seem as "Belgiany" as the aroma, otherwise the profile was very similar. And, perhaps, the spice note I detected was coriander, but I'm still not sure.

The body was good, clean and light, with a dry finish. Drinkability was very nice, I'll have this again while it's available. Overall, a good beer, one that's a bit different than most others. Certainly worth trying if you see it.
