Growler into a Gandhi-Bot tulip.

A: Hazy orange-gold body under an inch of delicate white head. Retention is just ok, but the lacing is impressive. Quite nice.

S: Light, fresh, and vibrant. The hops and yeast mix beautifully, with citrus, floral, and tropical hops alongside spicy, grassy esters. Not as intense as I'm sure some BAs would prefer, but simply wonderful for a session ale.

T: Even more amazing here, both because the hops have a greater depth of flavor than they did aroma and because they're balanced by a delicious, biscuity malt backbone. Citrus and mango hops are right up front, followed by fruity yeast esters midway through. Towards the finish the crisp (yet substantial) maltiness provides some welcome balance, only to have the hops come back on the finish with just enough herbal bitterness to leave me thirsty for more. Wonderful beer.

M: Fairly light-bodied with a moderate amount of rather prickly carbonation. Not bad, but a little too sharp.

O: I didn't know I needed a hoppy Belgian session ale in my life, but I did. This might be the easiest growler I've ever done solo, and I wish I'd gotten more. Here's hoping they repeat this experimental batch sometime in the future. Cans of this next summer would be welcome indeed.

Cheers!

A yellowish amber colored brew, cloudy with a decent white smattering of bubbles on top and very respectable lacing. The aroma suggests bright lemon orange hop and clove soaked tobacco-seaweed with a notable bubblegum touch. Quite alluring. The flavor brings on a sharp lemon clove bread/cake that satisfies instantly. There's a little bubblegum and a touch of clove, peachy and hay-grass. This is a light bodied ale with a thin but effervescent feel. This takes a little adjustment out of the gate as it comes on so sharply but it grows on you quickly and ultimately blossoms into an ideal sessionable hop beauty with the Belgian touch to quench your thirst and your taste buds. NEB strikes again!

Available on tap at New England Brewing Company as part of a new small batch series they are starting. This installment is a belgian pale ale that appeared golden colored with a bit of cloudiness and a foamy white head. Less carbonation than expected but still a very light mouthfeel. Smell was not as rewarding as a usual belgian pale ale, with only hop flavors penetrating through. The taste was more complex with three different types of hops and lighter grassy tones. Overall a solid experimental beer and I hope the rest in the series can be good as well.

Serving type: on-tap
