330 mL stubby Belgian swing-top bottle with no freshness date. This "hop opus" is brewed with five hops to celebrate the "yield of the harvest and the work of the brewer." It pours clear gold, with a good amount of carbonation and a very big head that leaves lots of clumpy lace. A touch of hops and sweet malts in the nose, but there is an odd, vegetal aroma in there that is pretty offensive. The flavor yields pale malt, spicy/floral hops that contribute a soft bitterness, skunk?, a bit of alcohol, and lightly fruity, chalky yeast on top of a crisp, highly-carbonated body that has a bitter linger. It isn't too bad, but there is something wrong with the bouquet. I wouldn't go out of my way to find this one.

3.86/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

a: nice swing top bottle that pours a hazy gold/straw with a cray thick white head that looks like meringue and has amazing staying power

s: spicy, sweet, coriander, rounded citrus,

t: sweet, mild hay, rock sugar, spicey, a bit of abv, and a mild bitter hop finnish, a little grapiness

m: the creamy foam adds a nice element to the mouthfeel; medium body, slightly syrupy, it is lightly carbed which i think accentuates the mild syrupiness - it could use more carbonation imo

d: a decent beer (although it is a little overpriced), could use a little less sweetness i think and some more complex balance - good though, but an also ran for beers in the style.
