Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of grain, earth, spice, and slight cardboard aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly tart grain, fruit, spice, and funk flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity and spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slight crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that smells a bit old, but the slightly tart flavors are solid.

Serving type: bottle.

Pours a hazy golden amber with a small head as poured from an older bottle that has been sitting in the basement awhile. Flavor is still good, has mellowed somewhat from the earlier bottle I had.

The carbonation on this was way too high. It burned on the way down. The flavor up front seemed fine but the carb burn ruined any enjoyment for me.

Hazy orange gold with creamy champagne froth. 4.5
Bubble gum, pencil eraser, candle, and herbal nose. 3.75
Snap wheat crackers with oily herb, rubber, and grassy hops. 3.75
Fizzy, some cling, halfway to medium. 3.75

-- Good wit with a whack of hop fruit. Champagne character to it. Not aimed at beer drinkers, and better for it. 4

everything moa makes is gold. i mean, bottle fermented? not refermented or conditioned, but fully fermented in the bottle. i mean, that takes ab-out the right amount of time to land fresh on our shores here, i think the plan is brilliant, and the beer just as good. i also like how they cork these bottles, very classy for the under 6 dollar price. the nose here is minimal on their claimed coriander. more robust on the belgian front, and certainly one of the more robust moa beers i have put my nostrils to. the flavor is the same. more belgian than herbal, but both are there. yeast is magic, dry as hell champagne fruit, and a carbonation unrivaled by any beer other than moa stuff. its long lasting even though its dry, so its so unique, drinkable, and spicy in a cool way. fun as anything, i like how different it is, and like all of the stuff from these guys, its one of a kind. definitely buy, especially for this price...
