Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a tulip glass, a bit off fridge temperature. Kudos to my lovely bride for buying this for me on impulse.
Pours a very clear amber with lots of lively bubbles racing to the surface. Head on a gentle pour is quite white, but fairly unimpressive and it collapses quickly to a cappuccino-like cap. Moderate lacing follows the beer down the glass. The nose is of green apple, banana, bubble gum and yeast. The palate shows the same, with banana quite evident, ending in a spicy and reasonably dry finish. There is a definite crispness to the beer that makes it refreshing and extremely pleasant to drink. Carbonation is a real factor in this beer; the beer is spritzy and the bubbles dance on the tongue. This is a very easy beer to drink, with a light feel in the mouth. Really, this is an excellent beer, better than many of the true Belgians, and well worth seeking out.
