12oz bottle poured into my hennepin glass, which i believe is the same as the BPA one. it just has a different logo.
A- this one pours out a translucent golden orange colored body with a tall bright white head on top. the head really takes its time falling, and leaves behind solid rings of lacing.
S- the initial whiff brings forth belgian yeast. after that i get some grainy malts and just a touch of toasted bread. some lemony hops towards the end, with some grapefruit mixed in as well. not as hoppy smelling as i would have guessed.
T- the taste starts out with grainy malts and that hint of toasted bread that i could smell. after that i get some belgian yeast and some pepper. lots of lemon and grapefruit hops at the end. more that i would have guessed from the nose.
M- the body is on the lower side of medium. the carbonation is a little on the high side.
O- not as hoppy as i was hoping for. this seems stuck somewhere in between a belgian style beer and an american style one. not offensive, but also not something ill be picking up again.
