Type: 750ml (25.4-oz.) bottle
Glass: Karl Strauss 26th anniversary snifter glass
From: Eddy’s Beverage Inc. in Saratoga Springs, N.Y.
Price: $8.99
Purchased: July 14, 2015
Consumed: Aug. 15, 2015
Misc.: Born on June 26, 2014; Wire hood

Poured a golden, pale, hazy color with 3-to-4 fingers of off-white, frothy head. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Thick, layered, foamy, spiderweb lacing on the sides of the glass. Excellent retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 4.25)

Smelled pear, apple, kiwi, tropical, banana, faint Belgian peppery spices, green grapes and slightly spoiled fruits. (Smell - 4.25)

Tasted similar to the nose with more booziness, almost reminding me of a Dubbel or a Tripel. Got pear, honey, apple, green grapes, Belgian peppery spices, Citra zest, some booziness and banana. (Taste - 4.25)

Light body. Creamy-to-oily texture. Lively carbonation. Longer finish. (Feel - 4.25)

This was a really good beer. Seems a bit long to drink this, even though I only have had it for a month, but good nonetheless. (Overall - 4.25)
