Pours a hazy pilsner yellow with a finger and a half thick white head. Smells of grass, earthy, wheat. Tastes of wheat, bready, crystal malts, with earthy/grassy hop character with light citrus and spice. Medium/light body with a smooth med carbonation. Wheat and light pine resin on the aftertaste.

Pours an opaque deep straw producing a huge, to the point of being difficult to pour, shaving cream fluffy, thick, white, lasting head that leaves rings, streaks & a wash of chunky lace. Aroma is a plethora of citrus: orange, tangerine, lemon, lime, backed by  cracker & biscuit malts with hints of grass, floral/herbal, Belgian yeast funk & chalky mineral. Taste is dry, chalky & lactic throughout with a bitterness that begins at mid-sip & intensifies until it becomes aggressive in the aftertaste with hints of biscuit, cracker, tangerine, lemon, lime, grass, floral, earth, spice, pepper & barnyard funk. Mouthfeel is light pushing toward medium bodied with aggressive carbonation, prickly, dry, drawing & with impaired drinkability.

Pours a hazy straw color with two fingers thick of soapy head, settles to a thin ring, wispy rings of lace halfway down the glass. Smell: straw, floral, lemon custard, notes of orange and dried pineapple. Taste: pils-y and crackery base, quick blip of soft ester action overwhelmed by the substantial hopping... fairly clean at first with grass and citrus pitch, then into a grapefruit segment and lemon water with some pineapple-like acidity in the finish. Worth the single.

No bottle date

Look - Pours a hazy straw yellow, reminiscent of a white ale. Visible sediment in suspension. Fluffy white head with very good bubble distribution. Good head retention. Very effervescent. Good clinging. 3.75 paws.

Smell - Noticeable hop aroma, maybe noble hop varieties, smells like a german pilsner. Clean orange citrus undertones. Slightly yeasty, but not spicy. 4 paws.

Taste - Bitter up front with a finish of orange and orange peel. Clean grassy, steely hop character. Sweet honey vanilla malt undertones, very subtle. 4 paws.

Feel - Mild tingle, somewhat chewy. Not grainy, very smooth. 4 paws.

Overall - Overall a very enjoyable beer. Not labeled as a white IPA, or as anything for that manner, but that is what it tastes like to me, which would still fall under the Belgian IPA umbrella. Never had a Belgian IPA that blew me away, but this is a very solid beer. 4 paws.

Meow beer.
