3.31/5 rDev -9.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3
Poured into a snifter.
3.5 A: Murky dark yellow brown color. One finger of frothy off-white head. Retention is about average and a short ring of lacing is left.
3.75 S: Hops and Belgian yeast spiciness rule the nose. Clove foremost with pepper underneath. Hops are a combination of herbal, earthy, and floral in that order. Sugary with yeasty breadiness. Pretty good.
3.25 T: Moderate bitterness. Again plenty of clove and pepper spiciness. Hops are again herbal, earthy, and floral. Yeasty breadiness. Not a whole lot else from the base. The flavors mesh a lot better in the nose. Despite a moderate bitterness, it comes off as unbalanced.
3.25 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Neither creamy, nor spritzy and it needs one of these.
3.00 D: It's decent but the taste and the mouthfeel as pretty weak.

4.38/5 rDev +19.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Poured into a tulip from a bomber.
A - Nice golden honey on pour with a big fluffy one finger head that clings to the glass and has good retention.
S – Fruity esters jump out first with a touch of that old familiar Belgian yeast funk. Some clove in there as well as green apple.
T – Nice burst of orange, lemon and grapefruit up front. Little bit of an earthy, pine taste. She has a nice bite of bitterness in there. It grabs you and goes though and does not linger on the palate. Shade bit of maltiness in there as well.
M – Quick bitterness and off it goes. Leaves you wanting more. Crisp and dry with the fruit lingering on the palate.
O – Nice job here. I love the nice biting bitterness and the fruity flavors that come through. Felt like an easy drinker and it was. You could easily have a couple of these and enjoy a night. I am going to be needing more.
