Pours a towering head of very dense foam, made up of frothy and small bubbles, excellent retention. Lacing is substantial, huge: large clumps stick to all surfaces of the inner glass. Body is a golden orange color, somewhat hazy, with light bringing out brighter orange and yellow hues. Carbonation is readily visible through the 50% opaque body, aggressive and streaming.
Aroma is of pale malt sweetness, slightly bready, with overlying hop-influenced pineapple and mild lemon rind. To generalize: bright, mildly sweet, somewhat sharp, bitter, and fruity.
Front of palate finds bright, sweet, and fruity flavors, with apples and unripe pears being major flavors along with lightpale malt sweetness/graininess and a hint of Belgian yeast. Mid-palate is slightly grainy and doughy, malty with moderate hop bitterness. Back of palate notes semi-sweet malts, with notable biterness, yeast, and mild unripe pears and mealy apple. Aftertaste is of lingering, sharp bitterness with hints of Belgian yeast and grain.
Body is medium-light with fairly aggressive carbonation, leading to a consistently fizzy mouthfeel that gradually becomes foamy across the palate. Closes semi-dry with little residual stickiness lingering across the palate.
