Served in an 11.2 oz glass bottle. First time I tried it I thought it was heaven on earth in a bottle. Now I'm going to piece it apart bit by bit so you can read just how great this brew is.
Appearance - not pouring tonight but has a great head.
Smell - sweet pickles, cooked hamburgers at the dinner table (I'm not kidding), citrus peels, fresh wheat, light banana and orange.
Taste - Dreamy. Orangey. A little non-offending copper on the tail end. Has a bitter that is not like other bitters. This is how it's supposed to be, friends. Finishes so smooth you want another drink. Sit back and enjoy life, my friend...you've got great beer in your hands.
Mouthfeel - Smooth with just the right amount of carbonation.
Overall - This is as close to perfection as I've had thus far - and I have a very hard time giving perfect reviews. What beer smells like an american cook-out and yet tastes so absolutely heavenly? I'm afraid if I drank only Hoegaarden I would a) go broke, and b) never want to drink any other beer, ever. You owe it to yourself to at least give this beer a try. Best in its class, and it just may be the best flippin' beer, ever. Period.
