750ml bottle I picked up from Hop City in Atlanta. I think the bottle was a little more than 10 bucks for the bottle. Served up in a goblet.
A: Body is a very bright yellow. Held to the light it gets even more golden yellow. The body has just an every so slight haze (might as well be clear) to it with a big and active carbonation to it. The pour got me about a finger of a very agressively built head, but it fades rather quickly. No lasting cap or lace.
S: Right as I popped the cork on this sucker the smell just builds and fills the room. The hops are coming out first and foremost. Just a really nice spicy and floral character. Just a touch of citrus (orange) is in there as well. Picking up on a little banana and a touch of pineapple. Spices are coming across as a little clove. The rye is faint but there. Candied sugar brings a touch of sweetness out. Just a beautiful nose.
T: Start off with that nice Belgian base of spices and the very easily identified belgian yeast. A little clove and white pepper. Behind that are the hops. Getting some candied orange presence but also a bright floral and spicy note as well. The spicy quality moves gently into the rye malt and blends wonderfully. Getting a little bit of wheat that brings out a good banana note that shows itself from time to time. Also notes of pineapple. With every sip you find a different flavor or flavor combo. Diggin it.
M: Medium bodied with a quenching carbonation, but it still remains soft and not prickly. ABV is there but nicely hidden, just a little warmth coming off the throat. Finishes most dry. Aftertaste is all that spicy goodness coming from the spices, rye and hops.
OA: This a really well put together beer. It looks agressive with that big carbonation in the appearance. Things change as you take in the aroma and then the flavors are so clean and gentle. There will be no issue making this 750 disappear. Just as easy drinking beauty. Need more.
