4.22/5 rDev +1.4%
Pale yellow with foamy white head. Cloudy chill haze and lots of bubbles. Head settled into firm skiff and mild lacing. The aroma is fruity (banana, green apple and melon), spicy (coriander, clove), floral, and slightly funky (barnyard and leather). Delicate and nicely balanced … no punches in the face and the character comes together as one. Much the same for the taste, hop and phenolic bitterness with subtle malt in the background. Light and balanced. Finishes very dry with moderate astringency. Body is light and bubbly … feels like a dry champagne without.
Overall, it is a delicious beer and another example of why I’m being drawn to Belgian-styles. Complex, yet well connected and easy to drink. Perhaps just a bit too dry and astringent … preserve a touch more malt in the overall character.

Bottle poured into a chalice
Pours a huge, billowy, frothy , white three finger foam cap. Giant bubbles , very good lacings. Golden yellow, hazy with carbonation
Aroma of grass, pepper, spices , cloves
Grass and spice firmly , squarely placed in the center of the tongue, citrus notes, tart apples.
Crisp, dry mouthfeel, gentle carbonation. Tart aftertaste
