New Jersey

4.21/5  rDev +5.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours a cloudy gold into a Golden Monkey tulip. A huge fluffy white head spouts up notwithstanding a fairly gentle pour, but drops fairly quickly, leaving scattered lacing.

S: There's fruit (pears and perhaps some citrus) here, along with a big herbal blast, the promise of hops, some warming booziness and a hint of funk.

T: The taste pretty much matches the nose, although initially the herbs move to the fore and tend to dominate the other flavors. As it warms a bit, though, the other flavors resurface and right the ship: a relatively mild citrus hoppiness combines with pear notes and a slight dose of funk to make things interesting. It finishes very crisp.

M: Highly carbonated, and light in the mouth as a result. The relatively high ABV is not at all camouflaged, but isn't unwelcome and provides a nice warming sensation on a winter night.

D: High, particularly if you start off at the right temperature (which I did not). A nice, and interesting, American take on a Belgian classic.
