4.5/5 rDev +5.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
Poured from 750ml to snifter.
A- Has a nice deep orange hazy complexion. The cabonation is eveident from the first droplet lining the bottom of the glass. Pours to a nice 2 finger head.
S- It has a fresh fruit smell, I definatly smell some apple and citrus but it isn't overpowering like some Belgium's. Very crisp and fresh, but still very balanced.
T- This beer is amazing in my book. Immediatly as I start to drink it, I notice the carbonation like a champagne but it dies almost instantly once in my mouth. It then shifts to a very fresh and crisp taste that starts off with some citrus and friut, a little floral taste as well, then INSTANTLY dies to a nice---VERY NICE--bitterness and spice that I don't know how to describe. Maybe as I drink more beautiful beers and learn to recognize the different subtle undertones I might be able to describe them; but for now I simply cannot. My best attempt is...oatmeal/oregano/hops!!!
M- This beer starts of with cabonation but then becomes a nice full body, ending smooth.
D- I could drink this almost as a session beer it is so good. No joke. It is just fantastic, but at 8.4%...one should pace oneself if attempted!!!!
Overall----this is in my top 5 of all-time favorite beers. A must try for all beer lovers.
