To much sediment in this, big turn off. Then the flavors just did not mesh at all. I would pass on this one.

Served on tap in a chalice glass

Appearance – The beer is served a very hazy golden yellow color with a one finger head of white foam floating atop the brew. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading to leave a good level of streaky lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a grapefruit citrus hop mixed with a moderately strong showing of a grassy and herbal smell. Along with these smells, comes some aromas of a more yeasty nature, a little bit of a hay and grainy smell, as well as some hints of apple and peach fruits.

Taste – The taste begins with a lighter and crisp cracker taste with a bit of a fruity flavor of peach, apple, and tangerine and a decent showing of a grassy and grapefruit tastes. As the taste advances the fruit that was present up front fades all while the grass and grapefruit get stronger, all while with these flavors being accompanied by some yeasty and hay-like flavor. Some lighter notes of lemon and some spice later come to the tongue and with a little bit more grain, and grass coming to the tongue at the very end, one is left with a rather crisp and moderately hopped flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average to slightly thinner side with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. For the moderately hopped and drier flavors of the brew the feel was rather nice and helped accentuate the more refreshing and sharp tastes of the beer.

Overall – A decent Belgian IPA. Not bad overall, but nothing super exceptional.
