Came in a chalice-- I'm glad this place knows their glassware. Weird in-between brown/gold color with a pretty weak head. This beer really straddles the fence between BSDA and Belgian Strong Pale Ale.
The smell is vaguely Duvelish, but with much weaker ester character, less spiciness, and less overall complexity. It's basically just yeasty and malty.
Tastes like it smells-- malty, a little yeasty, and generally pretty vacant. Mouthfeel is standard for a Belgian Strong Ale and pretty unremarkable.
It's pretty drinkable for the style, I guess, but there are a lot of better choices here.
Serving type: on-tap
