Notes/Commercial Description:
Nagami Equinox, a semi-dry Belgian golden ale brewed with honey, Mandarina Bavaria hops and 100 pounds of kumquats, pureed and added to the boil is just as refreshing as we hope'd it'd be. Brewed in collaboration with Trenchermen restaurant as part of our City Wide Collab series, we're picking up aromas of white flowers, tropical fruit, a subtle spice, and of course kumquats.

22 oz. bottle, with Batch #360/61 printed on the label. Another new beer creation from Pipeworks, this one describing itself as a "golden ale brewed with kumquats and honey". Sounds delicious.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a pale murky lemon colored body with a finger of frothy white head. Head falls quickly and leaves some thin spotty lacing. Looks pretty nice.

S - The smell is beautiful. Delicious tropical / citrus fruits - oranges, peaches, kumquats, bananas. Belgian yeast and mild alcohol fumes are detectable.

T - Taste is creamy, citrusy, and juicy. This doesn't even taste like it has alcohol in it, let alone 9.00% abv. Juicy orange / kumquat, peaches n' cream sort of taste, bananas. Honey sweetness is noticable on the finish. Maybe some bready Belgian malt detectable on the end, also.

M - Feel is crisp, clean, smooth, and juicy. Absolutely delicious. Like a glass of nectar. Medium bodied with perfect carbonation.

Overall, another amazing beer from Pipeworks. These guys are just constantly pushing the envelope and delivering new and amazing beer creations. Extremely balanced and drinkable at 9.00% abv. Very glad I was able to get a bottle of this. Highly recommended.
