On-tap at Beachwood BBQ.
Appearance: Pours a cloudy/opaque pear gold orange body, with a huge frothy head, and spot-patterned, consistent lacing. A very nice looking beer in a tulip glass.
Smell: Perfume-like aroma, very lightly on the front end. Hay. This is perhaps the "cleanest" smelling beer I've ever sniffed. White pepper. Brett on the back end, ever-so-faint. Wow, this is going to be something else.
Taste: Brett, orange rind, a very slight metallic taste, alcohol more prevalent here, and spiciness. This just tastes so clean and light, it's like the ultimate session beer for my tastes. However, the alcohol perceptibility and very slight metallicness detract, admittedly.
Mouthfeel: This is one of the best mouthfeels on a beer I've ever experienced. Just, as I've said, clean, clean, clean. Fizzy. Light. Slick. Wonderful beer to drink, it just *feels* good, and not from the ABV.
Drinkability: The most drinkable beer I've ever experienced. I guess this probably has to do with me not being a huge session beer guy, but it just was a great drinking experience - it's infinitely quaffable, you could have ten of them and it would just fly by.
Serving type: on-tap

pour: got a murky golden color liquid with a soapy thick foam head. This reminds me of a belgium style brew just by the pour you can tell.
smell: you get a sweet smell that is quite lovely.
taste: a nice blend of sour sweet and spice. More sweet then anything this is a nice brew by lost abbey. There is a nice fruitiness that is on this beer that makes it easy to drink and being a 6.5 abv its always good to make it easy to drink.
Overall: The spice is really nice on this not too harsh where it kills the taste just a nice smooth brew all the way through.
