3.14/5  rDev +4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Clear, deep golden amber with a huge white head which retains very well, with classic Belgian lacing, and vigorous streams of slow-rising carbonation.

Aroma: Notable bready wheat maltiness with a fairly dense note of bitter lime.

Taste: Opens with strong wheat malt flavors, a touch bready, and a bit spicy as well. Early in the taste, the agave appears, offering up a bitter, earthy lime note, which dominates the taste throughout. Finishes with a flourish of lingering, slightly earthy bitterness.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, full and pleasant, with the slightest sting of carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: An interesting example, very appropriate for summer. I found the agave/bitter lime a touch heavy-handed, a bit less might offer a better contrast to the spicy wheat malt.

Presentation: Packaged in a twelve-ounce brown glass long-neck bottle with a twist-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice. Best by date of 09-02-2013.

Sourcing: A gift from Bill B., a connoisseur and brewer of great Scottish and Scotch ales.

Serving type: bottle
