3.83/5 rDev -2.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Slightly cloudy gold, with a fine two-finger head that lingers a bit. A fine stream of bubbles rises from around the entire bulb of the glass.
Smell: Classic Belgian yeast comes through at first, with some mild black pepper and herbs. Like any Belgian it’s intriguing, but nothing jumps out at this point.
Taste: The herbs and pepper really come through in the forefront, including the advertised basil. A nice balance is provided by the hops. There’s a certain vinous quality to it – like a crisp white. I suppose I’m not sure where to find the rice in the beer, but I’ll keep looking...
Mouthfeel: Very high, almost tingly carbonation. It does help to keep it light given the ABV.
Drinkability: Pretty high. Could work well with Asian food; will need to do a return test with appropriate cuisine.
Serving type: bottle
