look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: brIght gold, minimal white head, , some spotty lacing

S: lots of spice, cloves and coriander, Belgian yeast, dry bready character along with some white grapes

T: starts of very malty and sweet with white grapes and black pepper, finish is sweet and syrupy

Mf: body looks light which is deceiving, very thick and a bit syrupy

O: lacking in balance, some decent things going on, not sure that I'd try again

Another iPhone review.

Pours clear golden in a nice tulip... seems like a pretty chintzy pour though. Nice white head ... good lacing and okay retention.

Nose tons of fruity esters and a bit of white peppercorn.

Flavor has same pear ester prevalence with lesser spicy phenols... a bit unbalanced.. grainy malt sweetness makes it a bit sickly sweet toward the end of the glass.

Body is a solid medium, but very coating despite a huge carbonation.

Not a lot going on really... seems all over the place and never meshes.

3.5/3.5/2.5/3.5/3

look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 1.5

Pours a little bit of white head. Decent retention. Color is a clear golden yellow.

Aroma: Some malts. Bready and sweet with some spices. A touch of honey. It smells like bar soap. A bit of citrus fruit.

Taste: Over spiced and dry. Bready malts. A big soapy flavor in the aftertaste. Bananas and lemons, but it tastes like old.

Mouthfeel: Dry and cloying. Medium bodied. It ends sticky.

Overall, this beer was awful and I could not drink very much of it. Nothing with this beer worked. It tasted like soap and it tasted like old flavors. Definitely a drainpour.
