Four-finger head that recedes in a lumpy fashion. It also leaves a decent dome. A bit cloudy with a dark, dirty gold color.
Grainy, raw barley smell. A bit of lemongrass. Some Belgian yeast nose as well.
Classic pale Belgian flavors: Some very pale malt, a good dollop of hop bitterness, the aforementioned yeast and a solid alcohol warmth, particularly in the swallow. Well-balanced. The body is as I would expect; the carbonation slightly above average.
Serving type: can

Poured from a growler into 668 tulip glass. Pale, hazy, golden-blonde in colour.
Smells of spices and yeast, with some wheat balanced by the slightest scent of sweet lemon/citrus.
Lots of citrusy sweet hops up front taste only the slightest bit bitter, as it transitions through light wheat malts to light spices and plenty of yeasty must on the finish; Which disguises the higher ABV very well -- this is very drinkable and tastes/feels light. It will sneak up on you.
The mouthfeel is lighter but close to the thicker side of things, and is somewhat oily.
Overall, this is a pretty great beer. I'm not particularly fond of the yeast profile, but it tastes good and goes down smooth.
Serving type: growler
