Poured from the bottle a hazy nectarine color with a single finger of off-white head. Minimal amounts of lacing left behind.
Delivered a very herbal aroma of coriander upfront with tangerine and mango notes along with Belgian yeast.
The herbalness from the aroma was definitely present in the taste. Hints of spice, black pepper, earthy notes and even a bit of vanilla found as well. Finished with a yeasty bite.
Medium bodied and dry with a moderate carbonation.
An interesting take on the Belgian PA from New Holland. I'm glad I had the opportunity to try it.

The Hatter comes in many iterations these days, but today, he is like me - an old White guy and in a bottle from The Friendly Greek Bottle Shop, no less.
From the bottle: "Flavorfully blends the soft malt, fruity esters and delicate spcing of a Belgian White with hoppy citrus notes of an IPA. Pleasant hints of tropical fruit are framed with orange peel, chamomile, coriander and grains of paradise."; "Pairings: fish, grilled chicken, hard cheeses."
I agitated the beer prior to my usual aggro pour and as such, I stirred things up real good. It came rushing out, filling the glass with a pseudo-cascade and producing two fingers of mountainous, fluffy, bone-white head that slowly fell, leaving great lacing in its wake. Color was a VERY cloudy orangish-yellow (SRM = > 7, < 9). Nose had a musty citrusiness, kind of lemony, but also very dry and dusty like newspapers in an attic. Mouthfeel was soft, caressing my poor, bruised tongue like an old friend. This was like hops tea! It was really mellow, with loads of flavor, like lemon zest, mango, peach, pear, garden flowers and some black pepper. i felt like I was being lulled into a nap. The finish was quite dry, thanks to the spices, but on a hot, humid afternoon, I really enjoyed it.
