Poured into a pint a hazy yello with a thin fading head and a light floral and citrus aroma. The hops hit with a spice and pine resin slam that over power the citrus and fruit of a Belgian. The spice and hops are bold but swing out of balance to the expected malt and bread-y yeast. The sharp tang of pine was satisfying and nice but the lack of balance leaves a one-dimensional impression rather than fullness. Dry almost to a fault with an alcohol burn behind. I wanted something more. An awesome attempt of an interesting idea. Waiting for someone to bring the idea home.

Pours a pale orange with some chill-haze. A huge overflowing head made a little mess. It laces all over the glass and lasted a long time too.

Has a mild aroma of pineapple, pastries, lemon, sourdough, and lots of alchohol after warming up.

Taste is bitter and hoppy. Very dry with bits of belgian spice and candied sugar notes. I wished there was a more pronounced flavor. I found this a bit boring.

Mouthfeel is creamy and drinkable.

Served in a Urthel signature beer glass. (Looks like a flat-bottomed tulip glass)

Appearance: A dark transparent amber color with light bubbles to the body. Thin (white) head with a hard pour and at best rose to about 1/4" off the body.

Smell: Bland light smell with a yeast after tone scent. Super light, once it warms up it kicks up a notch but doesn't mean it smells anywhere near addicting.

Taste: Complex but has a over powering lemon feel to it that I can't quite shake the sourness off of my mouth. Heavy hops and super malty which in most situations is great but this brew is definitely not built for everyone.

Mouth: Citris feel with a heavy carbonation to the body. Sticky, and quite honestly rarely I say this...best property of the beer.

Overall: Not a bad grew at all but factoring in the price and availability it has major holes in it. Hate to sound like this but it could use some tweaking. Worth just to split it with a friend or maybe like I did and watch some reruns of SoA. Salud!

Butter on the nose with a creamy ale texture on the tongue. Fantastic for drinking all day or paried with a light salad or fresh panini press
