A-Pinkish hazy amber w/1-finger white head, & some tracing.
S-Spice, clove, floral notes, light fruit and red berry, faint gunpowder. Complex w/multiple layers, interesting, and pleasing.
T-Spice and wheat w/faint notes of strawberry, flower petals, and bubblegum. Aftertaste is slightly spicy w/an ephemeral remnant of the bitter-tart flavor that remains if you've ever eaten a flower petal when you were little.
M-A little light on the body, for which a higher level of carbonation revs up and slightly compensates.
D-I really like this twist on a blanche. It's refreshing, complex, and light. Perfect summer session brew, and one of the few brews my wife would drink too.

12oz bottle in Duvel tulip
bottled on 2/14
purchased at La Duchesse in Quebec City
A: A shocking pink color with a very thin white head with touches of pink, lots of pink here :)
S: A hint of fruit (cherries?) and some spices, there might be more, but I have been fighting a head cold
T: Cherries and flowers with a light spice in the background, my first thought was a fruited saison, but there is a distinct wheat breadiness that doesn't quite go with a saison. The subtle spicing is a nice touch, not at all overdone, complements everything else nicely.
M: Round and yet crisp at the same time. I think the malts are providing the roundness and the high level of carbonation helps it feel crisp.
O: I like but don't love this beer. I think it is more me and the style vs. the quality of the beer. In fact I think this is a very well made beer and is probably a homerun for the style. I could easily drink a couple of these on a hot summer day. Nicely done and worth trying.
