Pours and sits bright gold in the glass with a large, foamy white head. Fades to a light skim with some o-k lacings.
Spicy floral aromas with hints of black pepper, lemon and dandelions. Tacky leesy backround on a crackery malt base.
Bright lemon rind up front with sharp, grassy hops moving in. Dries out to hints of yeasty spice and a lightly sweet kick of pears, canned peaches and apple. Medium hop bitterness.
Crisp in the mouth with a light-medium body and a fine, tingling carbonation. Suitable warm-weather beer, and plenty of character to boot.
Serving type: can

Pint can poured into taster. 4-6oz.
Appearance: Golden ale, decent amount of head. Can't complain about how it looks in the glass.
Smell: This was the highlight of the beer for me. Tantalizing Belgian aromas, some malt underneath, what you'd expect.
Taste: Spotted Cow on steroids. A farmhouse ale for folks who haven't jumped full-on into the Belgian beer camp.
Mouthfeel: Average, not going to do anything crazy to your palate. Where Spotted Cow shines with a touch of corn, Cynic goes for a more straight-forward mid-level ale feel.
Overall: Alrgiht. Probably wouldn't spend $10+ on a 4-pack, but would like to try this on tap sometime. A decent lawn-mowing beer, a bit more Belgian than I was expecting.
