Served on-tap in a 12-oz. tulip-shaped glass at Barley Vine in Bristol, Conn.
A: Poured a rose-colored amber with a thick, wispy head of off-white foam which left a nice ring of lace on the glass that dragged vinous legs down its walls.
S: Fruity and bracing spicy aroma with plenty of floral esters to go along. The spritzy Belgian yeast makes fine work of the delicate, fruity malts and sugar additives to create a slick, perfume of a beer.
T: Spicy and sweet at first with hints of strawberry, orange peel and rose hips throw in the mix. The spicy, herbal and almost peppermint nature of the yeast springs forward to cut through the musky, fruity concoction. A grassy, assertive hop character cuts the sweetness, leaving the palate dry and semisweet in the finish.
M: Light-medium bodied, sweet and delicate fruitiness add some tart and spicy sensations to the palate, with minimal bitterness left on the tongue.
O: The best example in recent memory of a wine-drinkers witbier, Fiat Lux is an unconventional, fruity Belgian wit that seems more engineered for a cheese pairing or fruity dessert than for general sipping. The 6.1% ABV wit would likely be well-received as an apertif as opposed to a session beer.
Serving type: on-tap
