Served in a tumbler.
Following up the Municipal IPA while finishing Best Defense. Not a bad early afternoon... This stuff pours a clear sunrise garnet topped by a finger of dirty off-white foam. The nose comprises sweet biscuit, clove, light honey, a pinch of allspice, light pine resin, and some dull grass blades. The taste brings in more of the same, the clove mixing with its oft-companion banana, some mild Belgian candi sugar, and the underlying grassy hops to create a somewhat unique flavor combination that seems to work. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, a pretty tasty little Belgian-inspired brew, something I wouldn't mind having a sixer of every now and again.
