from a bottle to a beer tulip
look; pale clear golden, lots of carbonation, 1/2" head lasts a couple of minutes, leaves a covering and moderate lacing
smell; dirt, bananas, sugar, yeast, a little hay
taste; malty, store bought donut, some nice honey and pepper notes, yeast, a little bitter, a little acrid on the finish
feel; basically smooth, medium heavy, some dryness to finish
overall; tastes more disorganized than complex, an ok belgian style single and a half

A - Light gold, banana colored and hazy with two fingers of foamy white head when poured into a snifter

S - Fruity and sweetness with some spice. Also picked up hints of wood or even sawdust (?)

T - More bitter than sweet with the bitterness really appearing on the finish. Not much spice and overall the taste was pretty muted.

M - Light body and highly carbonated, sort of like a tripel

O - This is a miss. If it's supposed to a be a tripel, it's too bitter. if it's supposed to be a spiced beer it lacks flavor. Forgettable and one to pass on.

This beer pours a bright golden straw color with a soapy one finger bright white head. There are suspended floaties that are so small they literally look like dust particles. Retention is solid and is some spotted lacing. Smell is banana, spicy hops and clove. Taste is the same with a biscuity malt backing and a peppery finish. Feel is light, crisp and refreshing. Overall a solid Belgian pale ale. Not my favorite style, but this is a great example of it.

Look- pours a golden color with a decent head. A sudsy, soapy looking lace covers 3/4 of the top and retains really well. In fact, the very last sip is just the lace.
Smell- some biscuit and cracker like aromas, fruity; pear, passion fruit and some tropical fruit. Also, there is an intermittent barnyard slightly funky aroma that comes through, which reminds me of a saison.
Taste- Fruity sweet balanced by peppery spicy. Bready malt. Light hops presence. Finish is not dry.
Feel- crispy and tight carbonation at first, then, it recedes significantly, bringing out the flavors. The body is light to medium.
I thought this was a solid, tasty and really drinkable brew.
