Fresh Growler: Muddled mustard yellow. A swift crown of off-whitened foam lifts itself upon a good pour. Lots of good lacing in hole lined sheeting covers the glass very well.

Aroma is soft of Belgian white yeast and sugar dough bread. Nice lofty touch to lemon peel, softer orange, starfruit, and ripe melon. As it warms a super soft touch of spruce adds in a nice melody upon the nose notes.

Taste is compact and complex with wonderful yeast and hop tones. Where to start...mellow, ample, start of fruityness with underscored lemon, melon rinds of cantelope, and a bit of golden raisin. Quick to hit the middle with a small surge of Belgian White yeast that sparkles like a great hefe and/or Saison. Quite peppy with a nice spicey undertone of white pepper and corriander laying a groundwork to a bit more lemony hop spicyness as it sinks into the finsih with leftover yeasty dryness. Then hitiing real late is a moderately set float around the back of the palate with a pale malt breadyness. One complex taster!

Body is low toned and smooth with just the right kind of yeasty dry bite and spice to its backbone as it stays somewhat bready, fruity, and sweetly natured underneath its medium stature.

Another Labrewatory creation by Dave that crosses/mingles/tangles/blurrs the lines of Belgian/German styles of what I can only think of as I Belgian IPA with a Saison and a Hefe? Well, whatever it may be deemed, it be deemed deliscious, complexing, interesting, and damn yummy!
