Poured from a bottle into a Chimay goblet, generates some short head that levels down pretty quickly. Beer is totally clarified and effervescing from the etching at the bottom of the goblet. The nose on this is very interesting. There's candied citrus fruit as well as pine and then some yeasty funk. There is no detectable alcohol on the nose, but pushing nine percent, definitely has a tiny bite to it and a warming quality. Certainly not overpowering though, and seems to be blending in with the hop bitters almost seamlessly. Flavor is citrusy-sweet, some peachiness, mango, and certainly a grapefruit-like bitterness on the back end. Mouthfeel is medium, slightly sticky, with adequate carbonation. Overall, I like the fruit-funk and hop-citrus combo, and I think this is well done for the style. If anything, I'd like more funkiness to it, but I think they took it to a good place regardless. Nice!
