look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Presentation: Short 12oz. bottle with directions for pouring listed on the side. What better glass to serve this in than my "Allagash" glass 'stolen' from a local eatery's promo night.
Appearance: Hazy yellow in color. Very fizzy on the pour. Soapy and huge white head dies off to a thin layer that sticks all over the glass.
Smell: Talk about a complex aroma! My first thoughts were "Lemon-pepper". Spicy and zesty.
Taste: Initally, very creamy...chewy. Surprising, given the fizzy character noticed during the pour. Fruity notes take over, oranges being the most prominent. Very little bitterness. Finishes very clean on the palate, with just a touch of "powdery" coating of the lips. Excellent.
Mouthfeel: Medium body and pretty darn smooth on the palate.
Drinkability: I've found the latest summer beer, folks. Super easy to drink, with such a flavorful taste that really satisfies. The realative lack of any aftertaste really makes this a thirst-quencher. Bring on the Virginia summer!
Serving type: bottle

A: Typical hazy pale yellow color. Nothing notable about 1 finger semi-soapy head. Really poor retention and no signs of lacing, granted it was serve in a pint glass.
S: Banana, clove, graham cracker malts, coriander perfumes, but fruit esters seemed to dominate.
M: Lighter bodied and creamier feel, but still refreshing with a moderately high carbonation level. Dry, crisp, and tart finish is superb.
T: Considerably more complex than the aroma suggests. Banana and cloves, floral hops, scant lemongrass tartness, white pepper and coriander spicing, orange pith gives it a dry and tart character on the finish. Slight metallic, but a definite medicinal character builds as well.
Serving type: on-tap
