Poured from the bottle into my Chimay goblet.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy golden/light amber color with a finger of fluffy white head. There really isn't any lacing, but this one has some good retention.

Smell: Sweet malt with a very strong herbal note. I'm also picking up some citrus notes from the hops. The finish has some mild alcohol to it as well.

Taste: There is a strong herbal presence, it seems to come from the hops and the yeast. Some malt, but not a ton of sweetness. The finish has a mild fruity flavor along with some alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with a lot of carbonation and a slightly dry finish.

Overall: I enjoy sorachi ace hops, and I think this was a very good use of them. The finish is a bit heavy on the tongue, but overall this is a very nice beer.
