Batch #111 poured into GI goblet
Pour: Cloudy, hazy straw yellow/orange color. Nice frothy white finger size head leaving a good amount of lacing settling to a soft collar.
Smell: This one smells unique and inviting for sure! Belgian yeast works its magic with a note of spice, bread and banana. The floral and citrus hops are complementing the yeast notes with grapefruit, orange peel, pear, a touch grassy and a bit of vanilla.
Taste: Tastes as good as it smells! Up front I get a really nice smoothness from the yeast. It has the spice from the yeast but yet is somewhat sweet at first. It has a nice hop profile with its somewhat grassy, dank notes yet also is citrus with its orange and grapefruit. Finishes bitter and damn enjoyable!
Mouthfeel: Crisp but yet creamy and smooth. Medium bodied with a moderate carbonation and a dry finish.
Overall: This was a wonderful change of pace and an overall great beer. I would like to sip this on a warm summer day paired with some food on the grill.

I have to agree with previous reviewers about this beer. They nailed it. Pours light amber with a 2 finger head that has great retention. Mouthfeel is great, medium bodied with lots of carbonation and lacing all over the glass that lasts all the way to the end. Nose has a nice hop presence, citrus notes. Some alcohol is also present but less than expected for an 8 % beer. Gorgeous looking beer, again the head on it is fantastic. At the end of the bottle it gets hazier to almost opaque.
This is an awesome beer that I'm glad I have one more of. Great job PipeWorks
