Poured into a Boulevard tulip, this is one good looking beer! Rich, golden hue with a thick, porous white head. Miles of carbonation but hardly any head retention. Incredibly clear body.
Thick and nicely spiced. Grains and crackers. Pepper and other earthy spices. Smooth malt. Notes of honey.
Follows the nose... Bitterness is up front. Plenty of spicing and noticeable alcohol at the end warms things up.
Plenty of alcohol and carbonation. Heavier body than expected. Dry finish.
I was surprised by this one... I wasn't sure what to expect going in, but I walked away happy I picked this one up. Aside from the warming bite of alcohol's presence, everything else highly enjoyable.

Corked 750ml into pilsner glass.
A: Pale honey, clear, bright golden yellow. A lot of large bubble carbonation. Airy head that dissipated quickly, soapy lacing, pencil thin after resting. A good example of the style.
S: Slight citrus, peppery, lime, hoppy presence, white grapes, light malt tones.
T: Starts with a bitter citrus, hoppy, pilsner malt flavor. Floral and grassy. Finishes sour and lemony with a small alcohol tinge.
M: Light and effervescent. Dry finish.
O: Good for the style but nothing to particularly write home about. I would drink this again if I was looking for something drinkable on a hot day but not something that I would go for in sessions. Overall, not something I'd crave but paired well with the applewood bacon BLT I had it with. Would pair well with lightly flavored pizzas, lemon/citrus grilled chicken or a good BLT as I had.
