APPEARANCE - Clear golden with a 2-finger head that dissipates. Great lacing.

AROMA/SCENT - A little sweet, herbaceous.

TASTE - A balance of bitter and sweet, herbaceous notes. Floral. Not overly boozy.

MOUTHFEEL/PALATE/TEXTURE - Good carbonation. Light, not gooey.

VALUE - A bit high.

OVERALL/DRINKABILITY - Nice beer, goes down easy.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Half-inch head dissipating quickly. Golden straw color with no real lacing to speak of. Looked nice in its Westmalle goblet, but expected a little more to entice me.

S: A medicinal, alcoholic, and citrusy smell. Yeast and hop aromas also play into it, giving the sense of smell an inviting feeling due to the complexity.

T: Sharp yeasty taste with a lemony backing flavor. Alcohol at the forefront, but in a way that was backed quite well with many contrasting flavors. Also, maintained a sweetness that fit in well with the complex array of flavor.

M: Generous carbonation, giving it a nice bite with a dry finish. Very nicely done in terms of its feel on the palate and so many competing elements in the taste.

D: Would love many more of these because of the interesting interplay of taste characteristics, however the abv would definitely keep consecutive orders of this one limited.
