poured from tap at haymarket. Pours a clear gold color with a nice and foamy head.

Straightforward aromas of hops, citrus and some wheat tones as well. Not too much depth on this, but fairly decent.

Lighter bodied with a smooth feel. It is lacking on the mid and there isn't much of a finish to speak of. There are some nice flavors of hops and what tones, but it just seems somewhat lacking.

A very drinkable beer, but not all too memorable. It is worthwhile to compare against other replicales though.

On-tap at Haymarket. Served in a 4oz taster glass.

A - White foam settles to a thin collar as well as some wispy patches leaving minimal lacework. Hazy peach body.

S - Spicy Belgian yeast, chamomile, a bit of starchy peach flesh malt character, a bit of grain.

T - The taste is similar, with hefty dose of spicy Belgian yeast and chamomile tea. Malt flavor is neutral and bready. Delivers exactly what it promises but it's not the most exciting combination of flavors.

M - Chewy texture with surprising hefty for the lower ABV - medium in body. Pleasant carbonation. Fairly clean finish.

D - It's really easy to drink, but it's not particularly interesting. Still, it was better than Revolution's attempt this year.
