Beer is almost an orange color. Looks like an IPA really. Not much of a head.
The nose consists of belgian yeast. Very sugary. There is a smell of apple as well as a floral aroma. The smell is the highlight of this beer.
The taste is disappointing. Not bad, but disappointing. Just not a lot going on there. The floral and fruit notes from the nose are not apparent in the taste. It is dry, with a lot of vegetable flavor and dry, bready finish. Some horseblanket, but it doesnt seem to fit.
Mouthfeel is good. Drinkability is fine. A pretty good beer, but not worthy of the price. I would not necessarily recommend, though I would happily drink another if offered.
