3.75/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a pale, slightly hazed, golden coloring with a clingy, filmy, white head. Nose of toast, honey, and subtle citrus notes, with some fruity/berry notes. Flavors are yeasty forward, with a subtle citrus blending highlight. Some bready notes in the backbone, with a floral/juniper highlight, and a subtle spice blend. Smooth, mid-bodied, with a clove and coriander blend in the aftertaste. Smooth, semisweet lingering finish. The booze is hidden very well in this beer. Different take on the style, and damn tasty.

Poured a golden body with good head and strong lace presence. A good amount of spice and yeast are prevalent in the aroma and there are notes of citric (possible lemon but mostly orange) and mild tropical fruit flavors. Beer is light bodied, real smooth, and tastes as it smell b/c while not too much going on (it's not a complex beer), there is a balance between spicy, citric hops and mild tropical fruit sweetness like pineapple or tangerine and the yeast adds a fullness to the beer so it is not slick or water. Just one of those beer that I found myself "chugging" and couldn't put down b/c it is just real good.

3.44/5  rDev -10.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Clear, dark amber (SRM 10-12), with no head, but slight occasional carbonation rises to form a thin ring of lace in a Rochefort chalice.

Apple juice with light cinnamon gives way to honeydew and white wine, however all are rather faint. Some floral traits are also evident.

Slight sourdough flavor with juniper berries. While generally balanced, this is tilted toward sweetness. The finish is subtle and quick, bringing out light clover and off flavors with warmth.

Effervescent, prickly carbonation accentuates a light to medium body with slightly warming alcohol and a satin texture. Warmth brings out a solvent character.

This is a fine beer, though not a good example for those unfamiliar with the style, as it lacks depth of character and intrigue. A roasted pork chop and sweet barbeque sauce definitely improves the experience.
