look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured form an 11.2 oz bottle into a tulip.

A: Light straw color, hazy with minimal visible carbonation. White head, billows quick, dissipates fast into a thin layer on the surface. Some lace.

S: Funk, pronounced citrus, mildly spiced. Very simple, straightforward aroma. Seems balanced.

T: Funky up front, with some light hints of citrus and spice. Slight tartness that carries through. Finishes slightly sweet, minimal aftertaste.

M: Light body, almost no carbonation. Very refreshing and clean feeling on the palate. Almost a watery feel.

O: Subtlety is the hallmark here. Nothing is over the top, and nothing is left so far in the background you are looking. Slightly funky, slightly spicy, hints of citrus...all balanced. The light feel with minimal carbonation makes this supremely drinkable. Yes, it's a Belgian style, but it is truly Japanese in its subtle, refined character.
