Shared this one with Dave at the Brick Store, one that he brought back from his recent Belgian trip – thanks, man.
11.2 oz plain brown bottle with an attractive label. Pours typically golden with a fluffy, billowing head – looks good. Smells yeasty, with typical Belgian Pale characteristics. Some mild pepper and hop profile in the nose makes you think this is going to be a dry, hoppy Belgian but the taste is MUCH sweeter than you would initially be led to believe. The sweetness is NOT overwhelming to me, and I suppose it is because of the honey base, but it doesn’t really seem honey-like to me.
Smooth in the mouth and incredibly drinkable on a warm Atlanta afternoon – gone in a few minutes!
From the few other reviews here, it appears that some thought this was too sweet. I didn’t, but it is certainly true that I enjoy the sweeter side of things.
