New belgiums fall revival beer in their fall folly pack. Pours black with a white head thathangs around for awhile and leaves some lacing. Some light can penetrate through giving the beer an amber hue. Looks alot like coffee with a white head on it. Smells strongly of esspresso and some lemon at the end. Tastes like cold, carbonated coffee/esspresso. Even as the beer warmed this was the only flavor i could pick up from it. Kind of disappointed this beer didn't have more flavors coming through. Pretty solid mouthfeel and body. Carbonation fades quickly and gives it a thicker, chewy mouthfeel after the initial heavy carbonation. Overall, not impressed with this beer. It is just okay. Like drinking cold, carbonated coffee. Wish some of the lemon and other flavors came out and then I could see this being a better beer. Seems inconsistent between bottles. Some were more complex and the lemon as well as some hops come through with the coffee making the beer much more enjoyable on some bottles.
