Virginia

3.63/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Almost clear yellow, golden in color. Nice billowy head fills the top of the glass before slowly fading away. Thick finely bubbled lacing.

S: Strong, sharp, spicy, sour yeast smell, which draws you in.

T: A clash of hops and malts with the sour yeast make the taste at first a bit alarming, then after the shock, intriguing. Fades to an off putting malt coating of the tongue.

M: Medium bodied with some carbonation. Odd drying finish which is a bit off-putting.

D: I'm having a hard time deciding if I like this one or not. Certainly a host of flavors and tastes, just that they don't seem to work extremely well for me. I enjoyed this one, but don't know if I'd buy it again.

Bottle dated: 5/27/09

Served: in a cervoise glass.

Big disapointment!! Stone cali-belgo is lightyears ahead of this! Average in every aspect and I think great divide is an excellent brewery but they missed on this one. !... i guess thats why they no longer make this one. Just trying to get to 250 characters at this point.
