Poured from a one off 12 oz bottle bought from Atlanta GA.
Pale yellow, a bit strawish color. Very unclear and a lot of haze. Head is around two fingers thick of white color, creamy and fluffy. Receding head leaves an excellent Belgian lacing on the sides. Good retention, stays for a long time. Super bubbly. A lot of finely suspended yeast.
A lot of typical Belgian ale fruity notes. A very good burst of pepper like phenolic and noble hop smell bursts as soon as the cap is half open. No apparent alcohol though it is only 7.7%. Some spiciness. Strength is moderately strong.
Taste is much better than the nose. Enters with upfront spiciness and crispiness. Phenols give a mix of pepper, clove and coriander taste. Some dry nutty feel towards the end. Some minor noble hops provide freshness and prevent any malt effect from coming forward. Overall finish is dry with some tartness. Very fine.
Mouth feel is medium light to slightly medium bodied. Abundant carbonation. Effervescent. No astringency of any kind.
