Look:
1-2 finger head out of a 12oz. bottle. Hazy pale yellow/gold color. Head fades, but nice lacing and occasional larger bubbles continue.

Smell:
Very floral scent. Hops are very evident. Smells of pine, grass, spices, citrus, and earthy. Slight malt, like a Saison.

Taste:
Strong burst of bitterness and coriander at first, then a strong combination of hop and citrus flavors push through. It gets slightly sweet for a bit, but then it seems to move towards a bitter/sour acidic tang. The beer dries out and upon trailing out, the citrusy hop flavors come back. Belgian yeast flavors are very strong throughout. Biscuity and bready.

Feel:
Surprisingly medium. I assumed it would be on the lighter mouthfeel by color and style but feels fuller in the mouth.

Overall:
Really good. Fuller flavor than expected. Belgian yeast, citrus, and spices very apparent.
