12 oz bottle pours a mostly clear gold color with a tiny-bubbled white head. Fades pretty quickly and leaves a few splashes of lace.
Nose has lots of herbal, grassy and floral hop tones with a bit of zesty yeast, but not as fruity or forward as the label claims it to be. Although, BBC has yet to deliver some really great yeast-driven Belgian beers. The malt is richer than the color or ABV might indicate…biscuity with some burnt edges.
Taste is much better than I thought after the sniff test. I get more of the malt and hop flavor than much contribution from any yeast esters, but that ends up being just fine here as there is plenty to contemplate. All the while it maintains an excellent refreshing quality. The hop bitterness is low and the body light, but there is a certain richness that is quite pleasing. Even though I disagree with the first half of the name they have come up with for this beer, its one of the better Sam Adams beers I have had in a while...Id like to see this one in six-packs. Good beer, bad style classification.
