Poured out of a 22 oz bomber and didn't happen to notice if it had a best by date. Poured into Belgian-style tulip glass.
Appearance - Bright golden, sunny afternoon yellow with thick bushy head that slowly dissipates down to a cm line of head that lingers through the rest of the beer. Lacing is faint.
Aroma - Wow. It smells sweet, almost like fresh-baked glazed donuts--but it's a good thing. It's wonderful, not overpowering or cloying. Hints of vanilla waft through and some oakiness as well. One of the more distinct and pleasant-smelling beers I've had in a bit. Let's hope the flavor delivers.
Taste - Thought not quite as enchanting as the aroma, the taste is quite good. Orange, lemon, and fresh nectar dance through up front and ride on a foundation of mild barnyard funk and brettanomyces. I detect some notes of grapefruit along with the play of yeast and a faint suggestion of hoppy bitterness.
Mouthfeel - Quite pleasant, with a blend of active but not overly-intense carbonation, and a smooth, but richly complex finish.
Overall - A beer I will definitely be picking up again due to it's aroma, taste, and drinkability. I tend to like beers with a little higher ABV, but this one is a nice sub-5% beer for casual drinking.
