22oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass. Bottled on Aug. 31st. Its been in my fridge for over a month so hopefully it hasn't deteriorated too much. Pours a golden yellow with a solid 3/4 inch of creamy head. Lots of lacing. Quite a bit of carbonation. Looks awesome. Sweet candy malt and sharp, bitter hops on the nose. Smells like a Belgian triple and an imperial IPA (can you say Le Freak). Very smooth, almost creamy texture but not heavy. Lighter bodied than I expected. Very drinkable. The taste is very well balanced. For such a unique beer, there is nothing really overpowering about it but it maintains an appealing complexity. I get hit with the sweet malt and the spicy quality that must come from the yeast. Then the resiny hops come in and linger through the finish but they don't dominate, they just add an extra dimension to the flavor profile. Okay, I'll say it: this is a great beer. Very well crafted.
