Poured out as a very nice clear golden color. The head was fluffy and white with a thin retention and decent lacing. The smell of the beer is floral, fruity and very bready. The taste of the beer was a little metallic up front, the more you have the less of that you get. The beer has a nice bready sweetness with a banana-like fruit flavor. The hops give this a nice balanced bitterness. The mouthfeel is very smooth with a good body and carbonation. Overall this beer was really quite good. I wasn't sure what to expect but it turned out to be really good.

12oz can into a Gandhi-Bot tulip.

A: Pours a crystal clear pale amber body under an inch of fine white foam. Decent retention and good lace. Attractive.

S: Floral and fruity esters dominate, with some moderate earthy hops and a hint of citrus. Light spice and substantial maltiness as it warms. Good, not quite great.

T: Malt and fruit both take over here, with major apple and bread notes. Spice, minerality, and light booze on the finish. Moderately medicinal. A little harsh.

M: Frothy, lively, and fairly light-bodied. Overly insubstantial, but fitting for the style.

O: Enjoyable, thoroughly drinkable, but unremarkable. I love seeing exciting craft beer in cans, but this pales in comparison to 668.

Cheers!

Beautiful golden color. Inch of foam. I'm not a beer connoisseur/fanatic but i do like beer.

Anyway, pours a pale gold gold golden color, really nice looking. Rather foamy, idk if that is good or bad, but it is a thing at least.

I'm terrible with description of smells, but to me this beer smells very nice. You know how some beers, even freshly poured, smell like last week's frat party's floor? This one is NOT like that. Fresh and grassy, just a nice pleasant smell.

Taste is slightly sharp, mildly hoppy, very smooth, and goes down very easy. sweet notes, but not unpleasantly sweet. even burping it up tastes good the second time.

Mouthfeel? i didn't even know this was a thing, for describing beer. I'll abstain on that one. Feels like beer.

overall, I am buying shitloads of this one. my new favorite. Also, it is now available in cans!

A- Very nice bright gold colored body with a thick, frothy white head. The head lingers around and leaves a lot of lacing.

S- Peppery Belgian yeast, aromatic tree fruits (pear, apricot), slight bready aroma, citrus, along with an herbal note.

T- The aromatic fruit notes compliment the flavors, but do not shine as much as in the nose. Citrus flavors up front give way to grainy, bready flavors, with the fruity flavors showing up in the finish.

M- Medium-high carbonation, medium bodied, very drinkable especially as it warms a little.

O- A very enjoyable, above average Belgian style offering.
