12 oz bottle purchased while on vacation in Las Vegas, early November 2011. A packaged on date of 4-18-11 with a best by date of April 2012. I poured this into my beer goblet.
Appearance:I swirled the yeast into the beer before pouring. A hazy light gold beer. Has an off white two finger head that settled to about half a finger and looked nice and frothy. Sheets of bubbles formed on the inside of the glass rather than lacing.
Smell: Belgian yeast strain phenols with light clove and some banana. The malts are toasty and light while the hops are light and mainly earthy. A little citrus as well.
Taste: Lemon and other citrus are the first tastes that I sense. There is a dryness that goes along with the toasty malts. This is not an IPA done with Belgian yeast, as I was suspecting. The malt and the hops are not as prominent as that. The yeast are much more important in this beer. Balanced with light bitterness on the finish.
Mouthfeel: A light to medium bodied beer, this one coats the mouth with flavor. The carbonation is sharp and uplifting.
Overall: Not quite what I was expecting, but a tasty beer nonetheless. Beginners may not appreciate all that is going on here, but they should not shy away from it.
