A - Poured into a La Chouffe tulip. Clear golden yellowy-orange body. Huge, frothy white head. Abundant carbonation.
S - Apple juice, mostly. Quite frankly that's all I smell. If I take an enormous whiff, yeast is the dominant smell, with a light hopping.
T - I like this a bit. It's got a strange, almost metallic aftertaste but it comes in as a hop bitterness after a while. While it's not overly complex, the flavors involved meld well, and it really comes together after the first glass or so. Dry finish helps overall quaffability. A well-made brew.
M - Sparkly, as I'm finding to be the case with lots of the Lost Abbey brews. Light bodied.
D - Easy drinking on this mild summer afternoon. Dry finish makes this beer a really wonderful drinker.
Notes: The price on this pup would deter me a little from seeking it out consistently, but it's a nice treat and definitely worth a try.

Growler in a pint glass.

T-Fresh white bread, light citrus fruits. Creamy.
M- Tart, funky, tingly. Small bubble carb. Dry tart finish.
O- Quite Belgian-like.
