I got to experience this twice now at Three Floyds.
Mood: The first time I was there with my husband at a high table near the bar, we were starting on a road trip. The second time we were on a mini road trip and at the (busy!) bar.
Appearance: Yellow with white head. The head was nicely formed and did not dissipate either quickly or slowly.
Scent: Oh the scent! Heady and sweet with notes of cinnamon, cardamom and ginger! Oh the ginger!
Taste: Ginger immediately on a first sip - this gives way to my palate to strong coriander with notes of cinnamon. The combination recalls an exquisite curry or an interesting custard. Very slight banana in the finish as it warms.
Body: Thick! Now you know where Thick comes from in the name. Thicker than table cream, maybe the texture of heavy whipping cream.
This is a white Ipocras in beer form.
Though this beer was thick and rich, it managed a lightness and 'drinkability' due to the addition of the spices. A lovely sweet beer, suitable for summer. If you like sweet, light, spiced beers, you will enjoy this.
Serving type: on-tap
