4.2/5  rDev +2.2%

Serving: 12 oz bottle poured into a stemmed pilsner (beer tulip) glass.

Appearance: Pale, straw yellow with a slight haze. Frothy, rocky white head from lively carbonation, with a lasting cap of foam and intricate lacing.

Smell: Bright and refreshing; lemon zest, spicy Belgian yeast (peppercorns) and light malt.

Taste: Clean, smooth malt body (crackers), lightly tart lemon fruitiness, and spicy yeast. Hops add floral notes and light, dry bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium to light body with lively carbonation and clean finish.

Overall: Aromatic and flavorful while still crisp and refreshing, especially given its 7.6% ABV.
