Light color body, with a thick white fizzy head.
Taste has a yeasty taste to it. Nice kumquat flavor with a little clove.
Darn good beer.

Poured from a 750mL bottle into a flared glass at a DFH dinner at Rapture. From notes. Reviewed 16 January 2012.

A: A finger of stark white head fades fast. Lots of bubbles in this pale, clear ale. Decent lacing.

S: Tart kumquats, tripel-ly spices, and clean Belgian(?) yeast. Nope, apparently it's sake yeast. Interesting. Smells like a BSPA.

T: And it *tastes* like a BSPA. Very clean, subdued, grassy flavors. The spices aren't very spicy (i.e., not pepper). Light in taste for 8.2%. Vague clove, but the fruitiness is the star of the show -- light citrus; roundly pleasant.

M: The mouthfeel is excellent. Champagne-like, spritzy, light, refreshing, and, overall, delicate.

O: Good beer, but perhaps not exceptional. Recommended for lovers of odd yeasy and (BS)PAs.
