Enjoyed on nitro-tap at Bier Station in Kansas City. Poured into a small Belgian-style tulip glass.
Appearance - Healthy two-finger head of creamy, microbubble beige foam, as you'd expect from a nitro tap. Body is liquid gold and clean, with some amber highlights around the edges of the glass. Foam settles to a half-finger blanket, like fallen snow. Lacing is thick and webbed--completely covering the side of the glass in some places.
Smell - The aroma seems to be masked by the dense layer of foam, but through the proverbial fog comes fresh-cut wildflowers and lemongrass. If you really work hard, you can smell some bitterness.
Taste - Not as forward as I expected, so either the nitro has tamed the aromatics of this beer, impacting the smell and taste, or the beer just isn't that deep, in spite of being quite tasty. Gentle flowers, like jasmine and lavendar, with mild phenols. Like with the smell, if you try hard, there is some bitterness in the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel - Creamy and decadent, with viscosity that reminds me of some hard liquors. Pretty much what one should expect from a nitro-tap beer. I'll be excited to have this one without the nitro in the future.
