Bottle with a best before date of Oct. 2013, poured into a pilsner-style glass.
Pale, perfectly clear straw yellow. A merengue-like head of pure white, two fingers tall, hangs out and becomes craggy, mountainous foam. Some fluffy streaks of lace decorate the glass as I drink.
The nose is made up of white pepper, coriander, tangerine peel and pear juice in equal parts. It’s a great, subtle blend.
Spicy! This is the perfect blend of spice rack stuff — coriander, clove and white pepper — along with sweet blasts of pears and apples. The slightly drying finish leaves perfect amount of lingering sweet pears and bread. Clean yet complex.
Effervescent in the mouth, this one erupts in large bubbles as it moves. The soft, light body is the epitome of refreshment.
It's taken me too long to try this beer and find that it’s wonderfully complex yet light and refreshing. It’s the style standard for a reason.
