3.78/5 rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Appearance- golden yellow with some haziness white head quickly fades away and tiny small bubbles can be seen slowly streaming up,
Smell- very nice spice, banana, clove notes from a very lively yeast, nice nose
Taste- the taste is nice up front as you get some the flavors that you get from the smell, but the hop presence is very strong on the end as they are really going for a drying hop bitterness on the finish keeping things really dry, winds up much hoppier and drier then expect on nose
Mouthfeel- very crisp and refreshing with good amount of carbonation
Drinkability/overall- overall this beer would make a nice session beer to enjoy largely due to large amount of hoppiness that stops alot of the sweetness many belgians can have, I think though it creates good drinkability the only downside of this beer to me can be the hops are so dominate it probably takes away some the complexities lurking in there from the belgian yeast, and overall decent ale that would please a hop lover looking for slight belgian twist,
Serving type: on-tap

Verboten has a hazy, peach and copper body with a large and dense, just off-white head. Head has great retention, becoming rocky as it recedes, and leaves heavy lacing. Most noticeable in the aroma is the expected spicy yeasty, with coriander and a bit of clove and pepper. Also has a good deal of fruit in it, including apple, banana, and lemon.
Taste starts with assertive and dry yeast, moving to white pepper and clove. Then banana, orange peel, lemon, and sour apple in the middle, with a dry, yeasty, slightly citric, crisp finish. Mouthfeel is light with very high carbonation, a touch of graininess.
