330ml bottle into Chimay chalice, both from the gift pack, woohoo! 1cm off-white to pale straw head with reduces down to nothing. Hazy brown red color, I think I got a little of the sediment in the chalice. Also, maybe hazier than expected due to the width of the chalice which darkens the color since light has to pass through more beer...
Raisin citrus aroma with the lightest hint of malt. Tastes a huge yeasty malt pretzel, then a fruity hop bitterness and slight black peppery spice.
Sparkly carbonation makes for a very crisp start and just the slightest astringency. It lightens up the medium body and is a bit drying on the finish.
Finish is a great balance between malt and hoppy bitterness with slight warming feel from the alcohol, though the alcohol is not otherwise tasted/smelled.
Fairly drinkable though the snappyness of the carbonation starts to wear on me after a bit.
