Notes / Commercial Description:
Nagami Equinox, a semi-dry Belgian golden ale brewed with honey, Mandarina Bavaria hops and 100 pounds of kumquats, pureed and added to the boil is just as refreshing as we hope'd it'd be. Brewed in collaboration with Trenchermen restaurant as part of our City Wide Collab series, we're picking up aromas of white flowers, tropical fruit, a subtle spice, and of course kumquats.

22 ounce bomber into a Pipeworks snifter. Batch 639. The hop profile for this batch has changed from Mandarina to Amarillo.

Pours a good looking orange, with a small, tight head and some lacing. Smells of Belgian yeast, hops, a little black pepper. Taste continues a strong yeast presence. Picking up the kumquats, or at least a not very sweet citrus taste on the front end. Some hops in the middle and a little sweetness on the back end. Solid body, feels kind of creamy.

Very enjoyable beer. Has a lot going on, more complex than my description makes it sound. Kinda surprised it isn't getting better ratings, but I definitely recommend it.
