12oz to libbey Belgian
Bottled on 03/08/2013, bought ~4/3/2013
A – Translucent, tiny bit clear. Not hazy, just absorptive. Burnt orangey-copper. Low head, dissipated kind of quickly.
S – A bready, woody, sweetness from the Belgian yeast and sugar (assuming Belgian sugar). Some plum and pepper. Wet grass and nip of pine with citrus. Slight buttery popcorn smell (diacetyl). Smells awesome though. Has both Belgian ale and IPA smells distinct and balanced.
T – Get a little bit of the buttery popcorn, kind of muddled. No clear Belgian or IPA flavors on first two sips. A tiny bit of Belgian bready sweetness, with strong wet grass and weak plum. Pretty woody, wet grassy; no citrus til the aftertaste.
M – Light-medium bodied, dry finish. Soft, a little tingly, slightly cozy.
D – Was stoked on the smell but the taste didn’t hold up. Going to let it warm for 10 more minutes.
Let it warm 10 minutes.
S – Butter, wood, wet grass, a tiny bit of bready sweetness and lemon zest.
T – Taste follows smell now. Still not very Belgiany and no pine.
M – Softer, a little thicker- medium bodied now.
D – Overall loved the smell, but the taste never lived up to what I whiffed… so the beer whiffed. It’s good but not excellent.
3.75, 4.5, 3.75, 4, 3.75.

A: Hazy orange color. Some lacing lingers around the glass. A little head that quickly fades to leave bubbles around the edge of the glass the whole way down. S: Citrus like smell. I get a slight sour smell almost hidden. T: Slight grapefruit. Not too bitter for an ipa. Get a little of that Belgian yeast taste, enough to let you know it's there, but not overpowering. Tastes like it smells. M: A slight spice feel to it. Little bit of sour near the end that lingers on the tongue. On the dry side. O: Not bad at all. This style is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. Worth a sixer for sure, interesting name and label.
