Tulip glass.

A: Pours a straw yellow with two fingers of snow white, fluffy, pillowy head and a champagne-like effervescence. Superb retention and brilliant clarity.

S: Banana creme, blondish malt, apple, a bit of spice and bread.

T: Light banana, a little bready yeast, and a dusting of vanilla and apple, finishing with some slight sweetness. Overall, pretty clean flavors.

M: Champagne like, super soft carbonation and medium body. Slightly warming but hides the alcohol exceedingly well.

O: A highly drinkable, well crafted beer. Superb example of the style. I think the balanced flavors and slight residual sweetness lets this pair exceptionally well with food.

Served from a 330ml bottle to a tulip

A: Golden straw color. Two finger head of pillowy sudsy foam. Nice lacing.

S: Sweet doughy malts followed up by a mild hop and spice aroma.

T: Honey, apple, maybe a little bit of cloves. Very nice pilsner malt character as well. Bitterness is mild. Alcohol is masked exceptionally well making it very drinkable. In some ways its not dissimilar to white wine.

M: Very carbonated with a champagne like character I like so much in this style of beer, or almost any Belgian for that matter. Very dry and clean drinking.

O: First time I tried this beer was about 5-6 months ago and I wasn't really to impressed with it. I'm happy I went back and tried it again. I feel as though my palate has progressed because now I rather enjoy this beer. Personally it wasn't astounding for me but it was enjoyable and I would probably pick it up on occasion.
