look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
375ml bottle poured into a Russian River '-tion' glass. Bottle generously provided as an extra by crosamich, thanks Adam!
A - This beer opens with a small pop and after pouring, it pours the biggest head of any '-tion's I've had previously. There's about 2-fingers worth of eggwhite head, with great retention. The body itself is a very light straw color, and it is a bit hazy as well. Lacing is pretty good and has thick lacing that sticks to glass.
S - Smell is relatively similar to Damnation in that it is heavily spiced and has a distinct dryness to it. Noticeably Belgian, it also has elements of grass, lemon, citrus, and coriander.
T - Taste is similar to the nose and has a big Belgian yeast influence to it. A bit spicier than fruity, the coriander shines here. Actually getting more of the grass and earth tones than the citrus, however, it does have a lemon zest finish to it. Alcohol is non-existent, and this is incredibly refreshing.
M - Mouthfeel is moderately light with high carbonation. If you are looking for a bone dry Belgian, look no further. It's a little puckering with the citrus, but the spices really help cut that.
D - Drinkability is high. I found myself drinking this very quickly without realizing it. It has an addicting finish that makes you want to drink more and more... would be a problem if it weren't for the low ABV!

A: Hazy golden w/ white short-lived thin head. Not much in the way of lacing.
S: Fruit, Chardonnay & yeasty aromas make for a Belgian nose that portends sweetness.
T: Flavors of grapes, bread & white wine.
M: Light bodied & slightly sweet. Dry and smooth. Easily drinkable.
O: Delightful blonde ale.
