A – hazy, looks like a Saison. Nice fleks of Lees. Truly “golden”.
S – Cedar wood. Very very mild.
T – Tastes like a very dry Brut. This is the most mild tasting beer I’ve had in a very long time. Yet, perfectly flavored when you look for it. The hops are some of the best ive ever had. A nice green bitter taste. The only aftertaste is the citrus like yeast flavor left behind.
M - thin, champagne like. The bubbles are delicately small, yet it’s densely carbonated.
O – First sip “doesn’t taste like much of anything”. But the delicate bitterness and white wine type of yeast residue really grows on you. It reminds me more of a Moscato d’ Asti than a beer.
Obviously the absolute top notch. This has the classic Belgian taste that has made the region famous.
A Top fermenting yeast it says on the bottle… and it taste more like champagne than ale to me. This has a deeply complex taste that is totally unfarmiliar.

It is incredibly pleasant.
