Tulip at Northdown, quick review from notes.

Bright saturated gold, perfect clarity, compact layer of white foam on the surface. Good retention, some lacing visible.

Aromas of light tropical fruit and earthy bitterness. Dried papaya, cantaloupe, coriander.

Taste is lightly malty with a cantaloupe note up front, followed by a building earthy bitterness that lingers long into the aftertaste. Medium bodied with a balanced malty presence. Overall it's worth a try, though not sure i'll seek it out based on personal preference.

Serving type: on-tap

3.63/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Really light straw colored body that is transparent. A little cloudiness that you'd expect but a very bright body almost like lemon or pear colored. The scent has some background spice but the hops come through. A bit of the wheat and some wet grassy hops on the nose. The taste is a bit muddled. There are some Belgian characteristics with slight spice enhanced by the coriander added. I get the hops primarily on the finish, which is much more bitter than I expected. I get spicy witbier on the front and dank IPA on the finish. Plenty of flavor in this one. Solid beer that I think can be more refined.

Serving type: on-tap
