12 oz bottle purchased in a four pack at Half Time in Poughkeepsie, NY. Best by 03/2014 marked on the neck of the bottle.
Lifts a crazy huge head, that fairly rapidly fades to a thicker film and thicker strands of lace. Hazed yellowy tangarine.
Earthy and lemony nose.
Fresh, zesty and lemony up front. In the finish the hops announce their presence.Dry and again earthy. Belgian yeast notes, spice and pepper adding to the interest and complexity. Love the style and this is a nicely crafted example.
Bring on the salads, cheese and crusty bread. Well worth a try

Pours a huge foamy bubbly head that attempts to fades fairly quickly but many bubbles streaming up reinforce it, mostly clear golden honey colored at the thin parts and nectar orange at the thick. Decent spotty lacing.
Nose very floral, citrus lemon peel, light flowery tea, already hint of coriander like spice, faint Belgian esters, light blond malt, touch of a floral lemony hop, touch of a grainy cereal grain.
Taste starts with more lemony citrus zest, then into Belgian esters, light floral spices and flowery like flavours again. Hops really come out but not super bitter or overpowering, fair to light bitterness, light lemon peel and floral hops. Again light cereal blond grainy flavours, and a hint if sweetness giving it a lemon candy flavor. Finish is dry and gets fairly bitter, lingering lemon peel like bitter rind, little grainy blond malt also lingering.
Mouth is med bod, nice carb.
Overall not bad, decent for a summer beer that doesn't get too light or fruity but still brings a nice hop character and without getting too powerful for a summer beer.

Golden color with a good head with decent retention.
Aroma of Belgian yeast and some sourness. Quite floral as well.
Delicious Belgian ale towards a sour beer with a firm but elegant floral hop with a mild overall funkiness. Hints of white wine. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light body with good carbonation and tiny bubbles.
Great sour beer, pardon me, BPA, refreshing and very well balance in all senses. Highly recommended.
