Lost Abbey tulip

A: Pours a different color than expected. Hazy orange, expecting more straw. Good finger of bright white head. Sticking around a while.

S: Mandarin orange. Citrus. Little touch of that peppercorn.

T: Citrus from the oranges up front. Maybe some zesty lemon. Not getting the dry farmhouse yeast and pepper I was expecting. Slick mouthfeel. Not as dry as I was expecting.

M: Medium bodied.
