Pours a cloudy, almost opaque light gold with a sticky white head with excellent retention, leaving rings of laces as the drink goes.
Not a heck of a lot to the nose -- some orange/lemon whiffs with some slight spiciness.
Outstanding taste. Lemony citrus, huge bready yeasty presence, just the right dose of coriander and orange peel and a large trace of minerals in the finish.
Crisp and spritzy in the mouth, with some real body from the yeast. Very refreshing, goes down about as easily as any beer I've ever had. Excellent warm-weather quencher. A true classic and one of the most Belgian-tasting American beers I've ever had not named Ommegang.
Serving type: bottle

3.98/5 rDev -4.1%

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
