Poured into a tulip.
A: Carbonation!!! When I pour, waves of it fill the glass. The body is clear and yellow, with the slightest orange tint. There's a big amount of rocky, white head that dissipates slowly. Carbonation rises all through the glass and provides an audible experience as well. Yay fourth sense!
S: The short and simple thing to say is bready yeasts and citrus and orange notes. But I really love it. Lighter beers like tripels and saisons have always been my favorites, but I've been having a lot of darker beers lately. This aroma is strong, refreshing and crisp. There's a grassy/piny undercurrent here, a smooth malt runs through it and I detect grapefruit and maybe even some grapes.
T: Follows the aroma, though the grass and yeast overly dominate the citrus aspects of the beer. It dulls the beer down a little bit.
M: Carbonation!! A thin body with lots of carbonation to fill your mouth. Very appropriate but maybe a little too much on the bubbles.
D: Strong flavors and strong carbonation. It only works well if the beer is made exquisitely and this beer unfortunately has some problems. It's still a very good and refreshing drink that I like more than my rating indicates, but the strong but dull flavor, along with the aggressive carbonation make this beer kind of a chore to drink.
