From a 375 ml bottle into a tulip. Bottle dated 7/18/12.
A--There is a nice, fluffy 2.5 finger off-white head that recedes slowly. The beer leaves a cap of foam and some lacing. The brew is slightly cloudy and a has a pale yellow color. There were a few streams of carbonation visible.
S--There is a pleasant smell of light lemon, straw, and yeast. It is not terribly funky, but still has earthy, stoney undertones.
T--Mostly follows the smell, i.e., earthy and musty with some citrus/lemon fruit and spice notes. The spice is there, but not overwhelming. This beer is not a huge palate-wrecker, but has more subtle flavors.
M-Lighter to medium bodied brew with measurable, but not substantial carbonation. Quite drinkable.
O-I liked this beer for its balance and drinkability (almost a session beer), but for 6 bucks I felt like it was just a bit too subtle when compared against some of its Belgian pale ale competition.
