look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured into my 10 oz pilsner glass.
A: Hazy and yellowish sweet potato color. Big head foamy long lasting head.
S: Has a distinct belgian wit style aroma, almost like rye or whole wheat bread. Notes of orange and lemon zest.
T: First flavor profile is of wheat, malt, rye and slight lemon peel. Secondary notes are of orange zest and honey. Slight bitterness comes through, and yeast profile is strictly belgian lagering yeast, and has a golden bock feel. Finish is dry.
M: Medium to light body, with appropriate moderate carbonation. Low bitterness.
O: This german style unfiltered "pilsner" is a far cry from what we're all used to from Sam Adams, but its a nice solid change. You still get the constructed put together aspect of Sam Adams, rather than letting the ingredients work naturally, but i enjoyed the attempt. Gets better as it warms up.
