look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

750 ml corked and caged. A beautiful bottle. It pours light gold with a very persistent creamy tan head that just stays for ages and leaves nice lacing. Smell is lemons, soap, grass, and a lovely breadiness. Taste is citrus, with a strong woodiness. Hops are everywhere but very subtle. Hard to describe, dominant but tender. Like a dominatrix with a heart of gold. Mouthfeel is creamy and tingly with a very nice viscosity that coats your tongue. Overall, this is a fantastic beer. A great combination of flavors and styles going on. Hard to pigeonhole, not hard to love.

4.63/5  rDev +16.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a Belgian tulip from the 25.4 ounce bottle.

A- Pours a pale straw color and produces a massive foam that requires several pours and waits. Cloudy pale golden body shows lots of carbonation.

S- Floral hops, lemon zest, apples, oak, citrus peel. Many explosive flavors but joining together in a tasteful blend of maltiness, hops and tartness... Loving this aroma.

T- Loads of tropical fruit, citrusy and floral hops, an undercurrent of sweet malt and some lingering zestiness. Outstanding flavor and just a slight amount of tartness.

M- Medium body but drinks fairly lightly with a yeasty effervescence. Some sweetness at times, but has a slightly bitter finish with the taste of citrus peel adding some dryness.

This beer is downright spectacular and unforgettable. I need more bottles. The price is up there but I'll bite the bullet for how incredible this is.

It pours with a finger of mostly compact foam that leaves ropes of Belgian lace on the glass. The beer is a slightly hazy golden color.

A medium earthy aroma of both hops and tart funk with an underlying barrel aroma. There is a low, light colored fruit note along with a light pilsner malt aroma.

A tart and moderately bitter first impression with a floral hops flavor and light tartness. The hops are also a bit spicy but the floral dominates the flavor of the ale. There is a light, gram cracker like sweetness from the malt. moderate light colored fruit flavors.

A light bodied beer with a strong level of carbonation and a moderate warmth.

Tasty and food friend, almost like a blend of a straight lambic hopped like a Belgian IPA.
