Serving glass: Poured from bottle into pseudo-pint glass.

Appearance: Mostly clear light gold with decent head retention and slight lacing.

Smell: Tangy grapefruit, light toasted notes, some spiciness.

Taste: Tart and tangy grapefruit dominates along with some tropical notes. Toasted malt body and some Belgian-like spiciness, but really the "Belgian" seems limited. Somewhat bitter.

Feel: Light to medium body with ample carbonation. Nice, dry finish.

Overall: More a tangy grapefruit IPA vs. a true Belgian influenced IPA. No matter, it tastes very good.

12 oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter.
Pours slightly hazy, orange-amber, and with a rather weak head that leaves better than expected lacing.
Aroma; fruity with a hint of baked white bread and a touch of Belgian yeast. Subtle hops, perhaps connected to the dating: just past BB date.
Flavor: fruity and mildly spicy with a hop level on the low end of the range for style. Moderately complex.

O: tasty, interesting and easy drinking. Seems best classified as a BPA.

I acquired this as part of a "Tackle Box" consisting of four different Sweetwater Beers.

Bottle poured into a pint glass.

A - Golden yellow with a good head that retreats to a strong lacing.

S - Citrus and pine with a hint of malt.

T - Citrus and pine start with a some Belgian yeast flavor to finish.

M - Very rich and creamy with good carbonation levels.

O - They claim it to be a 500 YO Belgian recipe hit with a truck load of hops and that is pretty much what you get. This is definitely worth having again.

A: An orange, golden, honey color. Not much carbonation from the glass. A tiny head and some lacing.

S: Tropical fruit, orange, pineapple, Piney and lemon.

T: Similar to the nose. But you get that Belgian yeast taste. It's sweet but balanced.

M: I think it's light. Although you don't see much carbonation in the glass, you feel the carbonation on your tongue. It's nice.

O: This beer isn't amazing and I wouldn't seek it out. But it's new, and I love what Sweetwater has to offer. I think it's solid and well balanced. I'd recommend you try it at least once.
