A Belgian style ale which claims to be session able at 6.5% ABV ‘due to its low bitterness’.  Clearly this term is a moving target.

Brewery: Bell City Brewing (Brantford, Ontario)

Type: Belgian Ale

ABV: 6.5%

Appearance / Aroma: Cloudy, sightly ambering gold coloured ale.  Sweet on the nose and some pretty clear wheat aromas.  Little head and no lacing.

Taste / Feel: Obvious citrus flavours which completely mask any hoppiness, bitterness, and most of the wheatiness.  I am not sure about this beer, it almost ceases to be an ale and becomes a bit of a raddler with its zestiness.  This is a sweet sweet beer.  Apples, oranges, bananas??  (confirmed with beeradvocate reviews).. This beer is a bit of a train wreck of flavours.  It’s not undrinkable by any means but one of these will be enough.

    But seriously… There’s only ONE criterion that classifies a sessionable beer. One!

    Anyway, you’ve had a string of not-so-great beers. I’m nervous to read the next one.
