I was pleasantly surprised at the aroma of tonight's "Cali-Belgique". I dare say it had a "floral bouquet" scent about it. After tasting it a few times (drinking "through" the beautiful, foamy, 1/2 inch head) , I'd say the floral aroma was true, but with a citrus twist to it (limon/orange). Hops were definitely in the mix of flavors, but not overwhelmingly. The only "gig" I'd give it was the lingering yeast taste that stuck on my palate, which made me take another drink, one after the other. Overall, a great beer!

A: High clarity and pale yellow IPA. Thin white head and low carbonation.

S: Good Belgian yeast funk! Some clean and herbal hops, citrus, sweet white bread, cedar.

T: Mind blowing! This is really different than anything I've had before, I dig it! There is kind of a sweaty aftertaste, which it gets dinged for. Bonus for originality. Sour notes and moderate hop bitterness. I feel like there are some floral notes that want to come out but are masked. Heavy yeasty, malty flavor.

M: Dry and thin, light on the palate. Medium level carbonation. Lets the bitterness hang on just long enough.

O: It's great for a niche beer. I don't know if I could drink these every day, but I think it might come down to taste acquisition. Really unlike anything I've had before. A good example for home brewers to see what a big difference a yeast makes.
