look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a tap to a 16oz tulip-style pint glass. Written from notes taken a few weeks ago while on a trip to FL for an interview. (Not that that matters.)

Appearance (3.5): Pours with a creamy-white head composed of fine foam capping a honey-colored body with warm, amber hues. Slightly hazy through the body, but not cloudy by any means. The retention is average, dying down predictably, and leaving just modest lace. Good body, okay head.

Smell (3.5): Slightly spicy and floral, with a light cracker-crisp grain note . . . any hops and yeast notes are wrapped up into one another in the same bundle of spicy, fruity, and floral tones. Clove, thyme, pear juice, and light tangerine notes stick out.

Taste (3.5): Thyme clearly leads the way with a strong, spicy presence, followed by a mix of clove and black pepper. A bready snap of fresh-baked country white bread, followed by a quick wash of herbal hops that meet the thyme spiciness leave a slightly medicinal impression. Any spicy esters or phenols from the yeast component get washed out by the thyme.

Mouthfeel (3.5): Light, quenching, and spritzy with a somewhat coarse carbonation that foams easily, dies quickly, and leaves a light, kind of watery body. Slightly better than average, but definitely on-style.

Overall (3.5): Overall, it’s a pretty good beer. Its base is a modest, but on-style Belgian Pale ale that is really built just to show off the thyme and spicing more than anything else. But it’s refreshing and easy to drink if you’re not thyme-averse. (1,549 characters)
