Deep golden hay body is clear with a bit of fine sediment in suspension. a Decent white head with okay retention and little to no lacing.
Bold and sweet. Blast of spice hits the nose right away along with plenty of Belgian yeast character and esters. Earthy hops. A hint of hay and sweet corn, polished of by coriander and a spot of lavender.
Follows the nose well, with a healthy dose of earthy hops right up front with honey and coriander playing supporting roles. An almost sour yeast ester is present with some light pepper. Finishes with a noticeable amount of alcohol.
A fairly heavy body for the style and moderate carbonation. Semi-sweet finish.
A solid beer, although a bit too heavy for style. Great flavor and well worth trying, just don't expect it to be a good companion for a hot day.
