3.68/5 rDev -2.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Served from a bottle into a Hobgoblin pint glass.
Poured by pouring down to 1/3 of the bottle and swirl while pouring to make the head.
App: Very nice colour and head. A 4 finger fluffy head and a lemon yellow translucent body. Probably one of the best beer I've ever seen. Still second to Duvel. There is lacing but it doesn't stick long
Smell: A very strong lemon smell upfront with some citrus hops. Followed by a strong smell of cinnamon which was utterly pleasent. There was a weak but prominent smell of bubblegums and some cloves
Taste: Was disapointed with the taste as I was expecting a lot based on the experience of the smell. There was a strong taste of lemon and cinnamon. A slight hint of cloves but bubblegum taste was not present
Mouthfeel: Very nice. Lightly carbonated. Balance was pretty much bang on. A great beer for a hot day of 35 degree celcius. But not so nice when you are left with a few sips when it's warm. It is utter rubbish when it is warm
Drinkability: Very drinkable. Nicely carbonated a very light body. Would make a pretty good session beer.
Serving type: bottle
