Cloudy, straw colored, a bit amber
Pure white foamy head. Nice small bubbles, tightly packed head that lingers well for a bargain beer.
Oranges? It smells like new belgium’s Trippel.
VERY mild in flavor. But, so pleasant. A small taste of hops. Not sweet at all. A perfect beer for having six on a hot day. I’d like to find more to describe it, but it’s so simple. Very mildly bitter, soft in flavor all over.
Remarkable. Likely because it’s unfiltered… but it lingers, it feels thick like Ovila Abbey Saisson. That said, the bitterness doesn’t grow. It just pleasantly fades.
Drank two 12 ounce bottles in a tulip glass
There are two things I usually don’t prefer in beer… Yellow, and Cheap. This beer is both, but it does them so well it makes me want to change my mind.
This beer tastes like the perfect drink after mowing the lawn. It’s very similar to New Belgium’s Trippel, but a bit more watery, and much less alcohol.
It’s one of the best bargain beers I’ve had in several months.
