Served from a bottle into a hexagonal glass as recommended on the back of the bottle.
A: Cloudy and gold. A solid foam head formed after the poor and disappeared after the first few sips.
S: Light musty aroma with hints of citrus.
T: On the initial sip you get a strong hit of tart, citrus flavor. The taste turns sweet with notes of spice. Very drinkable.
M: A good amount of carbonation, yet very smooth.
Overall: I have had a number of Belgian white ales and this is certainly a step above many of the typical contenders. This beer fits right in the middle of mediocre and excellent. It does not disappoint but it is good to keep trying other white ales as well.
