B-

750ml into a tulip. Pours a crystal clear shiny copper penny, dense egg cream colored head slow to recede, clumping froth remains behind, excellent lacing. gorgeous

Aroma is powdery yeast and confectioner sugar, light skinned fruits in the background along with a phenolic musk.

Taste too is yeasty and fairly sweet. Unripened apricot, a pear and some honey. Low bitter, low dry. Hint of zinc at the tail end of the finish. Relatively thin bodied but a touch cloying nonetheless.
cheers

Corked and caged 750 ML Bottle no best by date.

Clear amber colored all with a tall puffy white head.

Smells on the sweet side with lots of honeysuckle and and coriander. Herbs and pepper in the hop aroma. Smells slightly soapy.

Starts out sweet and flowery in the mouth, fairly mild flavor, no blood tasted. Softy powdery yeast flavor with a good coriander after taste. Herbal and floral tasting this is quite mild and the alcohol is completely hidden.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a tasty mild ale. What this lacks in complexity it gets back in user friendliness.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a footed tulip.

A: Amber hue. Pours a 1 finger, bubbly, white head. Settles quickly. Very slight spotty lacing, mostly retreats back into the body of the brew post-haste.

S: Yeast, lemon rind, honey, and clove.

T: Sourdough with a slight hop, accentuated with lemon zest, and dish soap.

M: Light body, with a bit of a floral character.

D: Sessionable

Atmosphere is okay. Fair head, and slight lacing. Nose is yeasty and citrusy with sweet and savory spice accentuates...characteristic of the style. Sourdough with lemon hints, but a bit of a soap palette and an overall floral overtone. Overall, this is a pretty good quaff.

750 corked and caged, poured into a chalice glass. It pours a pale clear gold with a slight brown tint and a fizzy white head that dissipates without leaving any lacing. The smell is caramel, peanut butter, and oranges. Taste is biscuity and a bit grassy with a nutty aftertaste. The mouthfeel is VERY carbonated, which I love. Overall this is a pleasant beer without too much going on with it. It is likeable and solid in just about every way and extraordinary in none I can think of. It is in the mold of Duvel but Duvel does a much nicer job of it. Still, worth picking up for variety.
