750ml into tulip, decanted for 15 min and reviewed at 45-55 degrees.
Nice 3 finger head over an extremely clear, bright golden body. Plenty of carbonation present. Lots of lacing.
Picked up lots of interesting aromas as it warmed. Ample supplies each of yeast, stone fruit, peppercorn, grass/hay, and a kiss of honey sweetness. Mouthfeel is pretty creamy smooth, with just the right amount of cleansing carbonation zest.
Hoping to find a couple more of these soon before they're gone forever! Would work great with any white meat/fish, or most desserts

Big fluffy fizzy head of 2 fingers fades at a med pace with big bubbles and spotty lacing, hazy banana wheat colored.
Nose nice fluffy Belgian blond, blond malts, plenty of wheat, light banana and wit like spices, light fruity esters, faint hint if peppercorns, light juicy citrus.
Taste starts with more Belgian flavors, a big Belgian blond with sweet malts, little toasty, and some light candy sugar, quite sweet. Then spices, wit spices with like clove and coriander, as well as some light peppercorns. Wheat flavors are there, with light banana and plenty if fruity esters, there is also a light earthy spicy bitter hop character, and a touch of warming and slightly phenolic booze. Finish is semi sticky sweet, more candy blond malts with bitter earthy hops, light spicy peppercorns, and wit spices and fruits lingering.
Mouth is med to fuller bod, little syrupy, nice carb, light warming booze.
Overall not bad... a bit boozy and overall strong for what I expected. But otherwise interesting. Peppercorns could have been a bit stronger.
