It was poured from a 330 ml capped stubby bottle into a tulip.
Pouring from a chilled 11.2oz bottle into a tulip.
A: It poured a pale gold body that was only slightly hazy and supported a one finger thin bubbled white head that dissipated before my second sip. The lacing was temporary and thin.
S: It had a sweet citrusy aroma that was accented by white spices and lots of lemons and white grapes.
T: It had a sweet lemony base that was complemented by tangy and young white grapes, coriander and white pepper.
M: It had a very light and highly carbonated body with a strong alcohol presence and a spicy clean back side.
D: It was light and packed a punch. Very nice representation of the style but a tad over carbonated and it needed a touch more sweetness to balance the citrus and spices. Nice beer that could support a long summer session.
