Served at Fornino - Bedford Ave Brooklyn

12 oz Bottle, into a wine glass
A - light golden color, tight bubbles dissapear quickly, traces of lacing remain
S- sweet smell, honey and a bit of hops
T- light, crisp, almost cider like
M- Very light
O - drinkable, but not worth the $9 I paid. Second round was a Brooklyn Lager, which held up to the pizza much better

Nice honey aroma. Pleasant enough taste and feel, but mostly light bodied and not so complex. Would consider re-evaluating in the future, but at the moment, I find it nothing home to write about. (Although I took the time to write about it here. Ha ha)

Slightly veiled blond, decent white foam, quickly falling.
Malty smell, orange flowers, camomile.
In the taste, again, light hoppiness, orange. Honey present, but not too much, camomile in the aftertaste.
Too strong carbonation, for a not too easy drinkablity. Otherwise, interesting.

Solid tasting Belgian style ale. Lacks weight and has a slightly metalic aftertaste. Great bottle.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. And yes, it's one of the prettier bottles I have ever poured. Has a golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of malts, grassy, light spices. Taste is grassy, floral hops, malts, not really the flavor profile I associate with this style. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall a decent beer, but nothing special. Gotta love the bottle though.

New batch just released, no actual date that I can find though.

A: Pours a clear honey-amber with a good sized, fizzy white head. Head fades with nary a trace of lacing. Decent retention however.

S: Grassy hops, decent amount of honey and crackery malt. Floral hops.

T: Honey up front briefly. Floral notes, almost lavender-ish. Turns into a crackery sort of malt with lots of grass. Lots and lots of grass. Very dry in the finish with lingering crackers and grass.

M: Fairly high carbonation, kinda gives it a fizzy soda-like feel.

O: Meh. Fairly plain, simple and just doesn't quite do it. Seems overly grass, too watery, just...meh.

Appearance: bubbly hay colored. Thick off white head. Minimal lacing

Smell: bready, slight grass

Taste: definitely overcarbonated. Smooth bready taste with an acerbic bitter finish. No off flavors but not particularly interesting either. slight bubblegum feel. Mouthfeel is fairly thick for such a light beer.

I always get a hard on for these phallic shaped bottles.

All in all a decent beer but definitely not worth the high price
