look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Poured from bottle into tulip glass
Appearance – Pours a golden color with a yellow tinted billowy head. The head has good retension and fades over time to leave a good deal of lacing. Very nice.
Smell – The smell is big of yeast and biscuit with nice hints of banana, clove and some other spice aromas. There are ever so light hoppy aromas of an earthy and pine nature as well, but these are light and overall the aroma is mostly of a Belgain wit.
Taste – A biscuit flavor with a good taste of yeast and clove are up front. These flavors act as a base for which others enter and leave from. Toward the middle, a light pine and a citrus flavor come to the taste. The citrus is largely grapefruit hop in nature. At the end the pine builds in strength as does the clove flavor and they mix with the nice bready and yeasty base to leave a pleasing, slightly bitter and yeasty flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is medium in thickness, but quite smooth due to the slightly lower then average level of carbonation.
Overall – To me it is an easy drinking Belgian wit with a bit more hoppiness than the normal. It’s pretty nice.
