Poured into a tulip glass.
Healthy one-inch head or so... very bubbly (could have been my own pour though)
Smells very pleasant. Delicate candy sugars. A little belgian yeast. But not much.
Sparkly. Lighter than one would think. Minor fruit and sugar notes. Maybe apple and raspberry (?). Gets better as you drink it. I
Mouthfeel is very light, somewhat disappointed. Maybe a lighter body is not always a bad thing, but I enjoy heavier weight, or gravity on bigger beers like this. Perhaps my personal bias. Not that velvety either.
Overall, I feel like I might have built this one up a little too much. Great for the style, I would love to drink these in a session, but I'm afraid I just can't afford that. Back to my Copperhead...
