Served on draft at Free House Pub in Middleton, Wisconsin in a pint glass on 7/19/2013 as we sit in the outdoor patio.
Aroma: Smells like apricots, but faint, with a more dominant spicy phenols from the yeast. There is a bit of a malty caramel sweetness as well. Smells good and aromatic.
Colour: Pours a pale orange body with probably a half cm white head that slowly dissipates, completely by the time I get halfway through the glass. Lacing is very nice, spotty but definitely leaves a nice lacing as I get through the glass. Looks refreshing.
Flavour: Follows the nose. A bit of apricot and caramel sweetness complements each other along with the spicy phenols. Not particularly bitter, but there is a little bit of a citrus bite at the end. Not particuarly intense, but everything complements each other very well.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, refreshing and very drinkable. No indication of alcohol heat. Aftertaste is mostly everything that comes out- the citrus, apricot, and spicy yeast all blended together.
Overall: Tasty, not overwhelming, but not underwhelming either. Shows off the Belgian yeast characteristics well, while complementing it with a good fruity hoppiness that doesn't overwhelm the spices. It definitely hit the spot on a hot summer evening on the patio.
Serving type: on-tap
