A- straw yellow with a hint of cloudiness. A little foam that quickly subsided
S- hay, grape and oak
T- Sweet, with acidic fruit and yeast that lends a musty chalky dryness
M- Crisp like a white wine with lively carbonation
D- very nicely balanced with interesting flavors
I had this in a 12 oz tulip at South Philly Taproom today at brunch. I think that I got the first pull from the keg. The beer was a beautiful golden color with a creamy head. The beer smelled fruity with a touch of grainy malt. The taste was fresh with mouth-watering fruit, a little citrus and banana, and alcoholic spice. The light carbonation and medium body was good on the palette. The >7% abv was only represented in the mild spiciness and made this beer easily sessionable, if your wallet abided.
I'm not a often a fancier of Belgian-style beers, so I might not have developed the palette yet to completely dissect a beer like this. That said, I enjoyed it, but would not order again
Serving type: on-tap
