look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A: Brilliantly clear straw golden body topped with a tight one finger head. Patchy lacing remains after a swirl. Beautiful beer.

S: Bright citrus and mango up front, followed by a hint of pine. More nondescript sweet tropical fruit as it warms. Very well put together nose, not overly potent, but extremely well composed.

T: Sweet citrus and tropical fruit once again, layered with dry crackery malt. Gentle bitterness in the finish. Damn this is drinkable. No trace of the ABV.

M: Bone dry and light bodied with a soft carbonation. Perfect vehicle for the succinct flavors.

O: A refined and subtle take on a style that generally is an effing sledgehammer in this part of the country. An exercise in balance and drinkability rather than blow your doors off flavors and bitterness. I could literally drink this all day and can't believe the ABV is as high as it is. Well done Societe!
