Bought a bottle of this on a whim, because the bottle is really cool. Poured into a pint glass, huge head. Smell of grapes and maybe a bit of citrus. Hoppier then most of this style. I really enjoyed it. I knew nothing about this brewery, and still don't but look forward to trying their other beers.

This poured out with a really nice looking white foamy head on top that had a really strong lacing and head retention to it. The beer had a slightly hazed golden color to it with lots of bubbles rising to the top of the glass. The smell of the beer was decent, some grains and hops nothing too special in addition to the Belgian yeast aromas in the mix also. The taste was pretty strong on the first few sips. The carbonation and the hops create a very sharp mouthfeel. Overall the more I drank the better it got. I wouldn't have to buy it again but it's not a bad brew.

Served from tap into a Trappe Door tulip. Poured golden yellow with two finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount very slowly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, banana, spice, fruit, and fruit hop. The flavor was of sweet malt, banana, fruit, spice, fruit hop, earth, and wheat. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. This was a fairly decent example of the style if I am honest as all of the right flavors and aromas were there and quite pronounced. I was really just hoping that there would be quite a bit more complexity going on. I had just seen a bottle of this on the shelves just before having this one on tap and was quite intrigued. I’m sure it will draw your eye as well… If it does, it is worth trying, but I would do so before buying multiples.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Poured from a bottle to a tulip glass. Had a golden color with a cloudy consistency. There was a big, foamy, long-lasting head. Good lacing.

A: An incredibly strong, completely alluring aroma of citrus, yeast, hops, and malt.

T: Tasted of citrus (grapefruit, a lot of it), a bit of yeast, hops (more than I expected), and a hint of malt in the finish. A vibrant, powerful, totally lovable flavor.

M: A highly carbonated beer with a smooth, crisp, somewhat bitter finish. Light-bodied.

O: One of best BPAs I've tried in a while. Easy to drinkable, well made, and very enjoyable.

A: This one is golden with a rather small off-white head. Decent lacings.

S: Spices and yeast, not too offensive. Citric notes. Mostly maltyness.

T: Bready mlidly sweetned malts. Yeast and faint spicyness. Grapefruits, surprisingly enough. Bitterness.

M: Aftertaste is kind of short and a bit sour. Body is medium to full while carbonation is smooth and medium strong.

O: Nice interetation of a BPA with an American hoppy twist.

3.3/5  rDev -14.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

The beer is clear light golden, has a small off-white head, no lacing, but some curtains.

The smell is citric and spicy, dill, grape-fruit and a hint of green grapes.

Starting glucose sweet, lemon juice and peels, a seed bitterness.

Medium carbonation, small intense bubbles, rather refreshing with a coarse finish.

A very well crafted beer, a bit on the hoppy side however.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

The smell is very dry with clean bitter flavours, some citric notes and a distinct yeasty-phenolic Belgian note. Hints of minerals, hay and sweet bread.

The colour is gold with a tint of orange; the liquid is clear. The three finger head is white and airy. It leaves lots of lacing when it slowly sinks down.

The taste is first very, very dry with some yeast, bread and bitter hops. American hops (citric, tea, bitter herbs) and some Belgian phenolic/yeasty notes. The aftertaste is very dry, almost astringent with some warming alcohol, green bananas/banana peels, bitter herbs, lemon juice and a mild bitterness. Dry, wheat-y, almost Champagne-like flavours in the finish.

The bubbles are few, but they are strong and almost sharp. The liquid is dry and light.

A unique and extremely refreshing dry beer.
