4.08/5  rDev +12.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

A - Light yellow/orange transparent with lots of carbonation shooting to the top out of the bottle. Small head.

S - Hoppy, citrusy, spicy, piney

T - Nice, very smooth, full bodied hop taste not overpowering, light. Refreshing.

M - Bubbly almost champagne like but not as much as a Duvel.

D - Goes down easy. I will have to remember this one for the springtime or summer. Very good combination of flavors and mouthfeel.

Serving type: bottle

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured on tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, crystal clear, straw gold coloring, with a sparse filmy white surface coat. Nose of toasted grains, subtle berry sweetness, and floral hops. Flavors are fruit and floral forward, with a tangy caramel nackbone, some hops resin, and subtle pine notes. Fruitier than I would have expected. Smooth, light bodied, with a tangy, sweet, berry fruit aftertaste. Smooth, slick finish.

Serving type: on-tap

Real Time review: Drinking this right now. A lot of hype where I live about this brewery. Just poured the bottle into my trusty Old Style pint glass. Nothing mind blowing. Pours a 1" foamy head (quickly dissipating) with a typical golden lager color. Has a little bit of sweetness to it. Very heavy and distinctive aftertaste I can't pinpoint. Just finished the glass: Overall it's good, but not great.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

For what it is, it’s enjoyable. This pours a clear, light straw color. Light aroma, some bready and lemony notes. Crisply flavored with a touch of breadiness and a quick finish. Makes me burp—take that for what it’s worth—but with no nasty aftereffects.
