12 oz bottle from kodymupa, it was poured into my petite Duvel tulip.

Three Floyds Jinx Proof pours a hazy light orange, with almost three fingers of cream colored foam. There's a little bit of head retention, with not much lacing left to speak of. The nose has lots of bready malts, and a fair bit of minerals and herbal hops. The flavor largely follows that blueprint. The cracker and bread maltiness that leads off is a bit more crisp than in the aroma. The bitterness that rolls in mid palate is pleasantly mild, with just enough snap to briefly grab my attention. The finish is largely herbal, with just a little bit of a mineral edge. The beer manages to avoid harsh grassy flavors that I sometimes get from German style lagers with a noticeable hop presence. The body has a nice firmness to it, but the carbonation essentially dies off by the middle of each sip, rendering the beer a bit dull. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed Jinx Proof, as it comes from a style of beers I'm not typically fond of.
