Misc.: Best by Aug. 25, 2013
Poured straw pale clear color, almost green, with one finger of khaki white head. Some spots of lacing on the sides, albeit light. Average retention on the top.
Pleasant smell to kick things off with orange, orange rind, coriander, lemon, lime zest and wheat grass, all with noted Belgian spices.
Tasted not quite as good as the smell. Still got coriander, orange peel, orange, lime, lemon, wheat grass and sugary cereal. Still some Belgian spices. Not as clean and crisp it.
Light body. Thin texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Abrupt finish.
This beer didn’t grow on me. In fact, it was the opposite. I suppose it would be a good summer brew though.
