Pale straw.
Quite astringent taste, very dry and bitter, grapefruit in the main, hint lemon, overpowers the Belgian yeast.
Very light bodied for 6%
Overall lacks something, maybe just too bitter and not rounded enough.

Serving: 750 mL bottle poured into a stemmed pilsner (beer tulip) glass (cap reads: LOTNR B91T14, EXP: 11/01/19).

Appearance: Lightly hazy, warm orange golden hue. Lively, frothy white head with lasting haze on top and some lacing.

Smell: Fresh white bread maltiness, lemon zest, black pepper, fruit and ester notes.

Taste: Dry, clean malty base with light citrus and yeast continuing from the nose, and plenty of herbal hops, tending pleasantly towards medicinal. Crisp, dry and rather bitter.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with prickly, likely carbonation.

Overall: Great, clean beer flavors; like Belgian Pale crossed with an intense, hoppy Czech Pilsner.
