bobsy shared this one. thanks rob!

22oz bottle. sampled july 3/2010.

pours nearly clear golden yellow with just a few chunks. a big white head forms, dropping fairly fast and leaving almost no lace.

aroma is good. floral. light belgian yeasty spice. honey and caramel. light alcohol. white bread and cracker. bit of grain.

taste is nice. white bread and cracker. bretty funk. floral with a bit of perfume. light belgian spice. medium-low bitterness level. light alcohol. bit of leather. bit of citrus.

mouthfeel is nice. medium-light body. medium-high carbonation level.

drinkability is good. nice balance. pretty refreshing. i'd have liked it just a touch drier, but it was nice.
