3.88/5 rDev -1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, pale yellow body with a creamyish, brief layer of soft, white suds.
Smell: Sure, there're carapils notes, the hops, the Belgian yeastiness, but none of it holds a candle to the strong top-note of floral, moist peaches. I've never been the strongest proponent of peaches but I cannot deny this is a very pleasant scent. Such peachiness, it beggars the imagination!
Taste: Pilsner maltiness with a crisp graininess and restrained sugar sweetness that doesn't quite yield bready or crackery tastes, close though. Then, a bottle-neck of varied tastes: the hops and their imparted bitterness smack into the phenolic spiciness from the yeast which strikes the alcohol warmth. But, it's soon smoothed out somewhat by the notable peach fruitiness. Closes out fruity, near dry, with hop bitterness and coriander dusted peach lingering into the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-plus carbonation.
Overall: A good Belgian IPA with a local Georgian twist. Don't worry, honey, the 9353 pairs wonderfully with "Last Famous Words" by the band of the same name.
Serving type: on-tap
