4.3/5 rDev +3.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: Hazy, golden color with bright white head and some large beading. Nice carbonation and decent lacing. Good head retention as well.
Smell: Very complex. Spicy and earthy with plenty of character from the Belgian yeast. Fruity notes with some sweet orange peel present and a bit of tanginess.
Taste: Spicy Belgian yeast with a sweet, tangy character as well. A little citrusy at the finish and a bit floral too.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied, yet light and refreshing. Very style appropriate.
Overall: Easily my favorite example of this style so far. Complex, refreshing and delicious. Works well during any season. The orange peel is very apparent and the grains of paradise and coriander add a spicy complexity that's great with the Belgian yeast. The tanginess and hints of citrus add even more to the depth of this beer.
