look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Aroma: Moderate clove and white pepper aromas up front. Background fruity esters that remind me of fresh cut musk melon and cantaloupe. Possibly some earthy hop aromatics.

Appearance: Cloudy amber pour with a fluffy white cap that retains well.

Flavor: More ripe melons, slightly peppery, mild clove. Earthy hop bitterness balances out the light crackery malt base. Balance is to the spiciness/bitterness. Finish is very clean and dry.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied and spritzy. Carbonic bite is appropriate. No alcohol heat, creaminess, or astringency.

Overall impression: Well crafted and well worth the hype. Not my favorite style but I can understand why it gets good press.

Served in a Samuel Adams Sensory Perfect Pint glass. Hazy straw with 2 fingers of creamy, white head that settles onto a foamy cap that lasts throughout. Spicy aroma - mostly clove and pepper - with a hint of fruitiness. Lots of Belgian yeast character. Tart upfront and through the finish. Nicely balanced. Light bodied and crisp with effervescent carbonation. Finishes dry with a slight bitterness. Well balanced and extremely flavorful. Highly recommended.
