3.08/5 rDev -13%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
A: Crystal clear. Well carbed. Straw gold color. 3 finger pillowy white head. Small tight bubbles. Creamy head. Looks great.
S: Belgian phenolics, banana, caramel, sweetness and fresh baked bread.
T: Rich creamy head was amazing. Then led to sweetness, caramel flavor, bread, some hop bitterness but more sweet. Lemon. Earthy, floral bitterness is at the end.
M: Creamy head is amazing. Rest of the beer is rather thin to medium. The residual malt sweetness lends to a little thicker mouthfeel.
O: I thought it was ok. Smell was better than the taste. Taste was only as good as the head. The rest of the beer had too much sweetness for me. I think this beer would do well to reduce the beta rest temperature or if they use decoction maybe pull a thinner portion of the mash...just a thought. Wouldn't be likely to buy from store.

Pours true gold. Perfect amber. White head starts fat and falls of webby and sticky, then to a film on top before it goes away completely. not too much lacing. Lots of bubbles to look at. Nose is lovely. Sweet hint of pear and some lovely soft biscuit malt sweetness. A bit more clove than I expected at first but nice and a very faint banana in back. Some sweet flower petals and as it warms some pungent bitter grass. Lovely in the drink with a crisp and dry malt.A softness that is actually excited by all those bubbles. The clove and the fruit combine lovely and earthy at first then give way to a fruity middle made up of light peach and a little pear around the edges. The finish is dry and drying to the palate with a light remnant of the malt sweetness, a bit of ticklish spice and that lovely peach. It lingers but not long .
Lovely adn everything it should be.
