look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured into a goblet.
A: Pours a slight darker honey color. It's amber that swings a bit to the yellow side, and if you hold it up to the light it becomes translucent. The head is foamy, bubbly, white and disipates very fast and leaves no lacing, but I won't hold that against it.
S: (I think my nose is the most forgiving thing when I review beers. Hmmm...).?.? Anyway, a terrific mix of sweet malt and bready yeast, leaving the smell at the same time smooth but very earthy (what I reawwy wuv about twipels). The usual fruit players make their appearance as well: banana, apple and pear are most readily noticable. Bright and crisp.
T: Take a big gulp, and it's a bit too overwhelming. But, take it slow, a sip at a time, and the subtlties of the taste come through. I love the earthy yeast, but the fruits really make the beer special. The above fruits are there but also orange. The malts make it sweet and smooth, but there is a very crisp and hidden hoppy bitterness I wasn't expecting. Hops, malts and yeast working together at last for the greater good.
M: Very carbonated feel. It's just personal taste, but they went with the punchy feel to highlight the fruits and hops when I wish they had gone with a smoother feel to highlight the malts and yeast.
D: Well you can't drink it that fast, being a beer of bold, upfront flavors, but taken as a sipping beer, it's one you can just sit back and relax with.
