Slightly hazy gold with a big fluffy head that doesn't seem to want to die. Had to wait 5minutes after the intial pour to fit the rest of the 12oz bottle in my SA perfect pint glass.

Bright citrus, woody herbs, slight earthiness, a touch of esters, and a nice dose of phenols jump from the glass, with a nice bready malt lying underneath. Nice lace.

Lemon and orange, green hops, white pepper, crepes? a lot going on. Tastes great, I enjoy drinking it more than thinking about it, so I'll move on.

Nice med-light body with high carbonation keep this beer quenching.

If it weren't for the price, this would be in heavy rotation all spring and summer.

Bottle to tulip. Best by date of 04/2011. Sampled shortly after its release.

A: Pours with a huge, 4 finger mousse-like head. Deflates slowly and unevenly while clinging to the glass's edge, resembling a a bright white snow dune. The body is medium-light orange-cream in color and 90% opaque, even when held to light. A fair amount of randomly slung lace remains on the glass. Yet another gorgeous brew from Ommegang.

S: Above average malts of hay and straw backed up by breadcrust. Dry hopping with Cascade provides strong notes of orange, lemon and floral qualities. The yeast imparts delicate aromas of must and new leather. This nose is nearly perfect.

T: Additional notes of peach and mango sweeten the bouquet and develop further on the tongue. Lightly sweet and lightly bitter with some spicy yeast phenols. Mild paper comes through as well. The balance of flavors are phenomenal.

M: Again, perfection. And this is a style I'm not particularly wild about. The body is full, the texture is thick and creamy with a mineral-ness that suits the fizzy carbonation well. Finishes lightly chalky with a pleasant bitter backdrop.

D: Highly palatable and highly drinkable. I'll purchase the BPA every time it is released.
