12 oz bottle dated BB July 2012 (so a little past BB date) served in a Unibroue snifter.
Pours a hazy golden-orange color with a rather small eggshell head. The head mostly disappears quickly.
AROMA: Fruity, mainly lemony, but with an unfortunate hint of old canned fruit.
M: Near medium body; Medium-light carbonation seems a tad low. Smooth.
T: Fruity with some lemon, as expected, as well as a vague impression of old canned fruits and ripe bananas. No sign of hops in this mildly sweet brew.
O: Profile is much more like a hefeweizen: not a beer style I seek out but even so, disappointing.
Serving type: bottle
