Appearance: Pours a cloudy gold into my tulip. I had stored it on its side, so the pour disturbed a fair amount of yeast sediment. A fluffy while head dissipates pretty quickly and leaves no lacing.
Smell: Fresh cut grass and lemon citrus take the lead, sprinkled with a small amount of black pepper. More than anything, it simply smells fresh, like a field after a summer rain.
Taste: The grassy flavors are joined by the fruit, which asserts itself more as pears and apples than the citrus in the nose. The pepper and mild spices from the Belgian yeast also figure more prominently. I can’t identify the hops that are lurking in the background and balancing things out, but it finishes somewhat dry and somewhat earthy.
Mouthfeel: Highly carbonated, and very light in the mouth.
Drinkability: Very, very drinkable; perfect for a hot summer day. Obviously one needs to keep an eye on the ABV, but with a little self-restraint this could be a great beer for a hot afternoon in the backyard.

Pours an opaque amber with two fingers thick dense white head, a few rings of lace on the glass. Smell: upfront it's grassy, spicy, with some mineral note; mildly grainy with grape and light stone fruit sweetness, sugar cookie. Taste: nectarine, slightly tart, lemon note, grassy, snappy grain, doughy and sweet backing. Light-medium and creamy for a split second, then some heftier carbonation kicks in, pulling it to medium-plus with a fluffy feel. Finishes dry and fairly hoppy. Delicious, crooshable.
