Old Review
12 oz bottle thanks to spointon. Served up in a goblet.

A: Pours a pretty thin golden yellow. Held to the light you get a lot of carbonation activity. The body is crystal clear. Held to the light it is a glowing ass yellow. The pour gets you about a finger of white head. Retention is a bit of a downer. This brew doesn't hold that head at all really. Falls to a really thin collar. Lacing is very spotty and really thin and wispy.

S: Smell is pretty damned fruity. Lots of citrus flavors: lime, orange and lemons. Then you get some nice green apple as well, little sour. There is a little bit of champagne coming through here as well, very light and airy. Touch of alcohol and a little bit of herbal goodness. Getting some coriander and a touch of clove.

T: Lots of apple coming out here in the beginning. I mean a serious green apple juice type flavor. Then comes that champagne flavor. More fruit comes out with a touch of plum along with some orange and lime. Touch of belgian yeast in here as well. Coriander rounds this out with just a light touch. Very nice.

M: This is near the medium side of light bodied. Pretty thin for sure. The carbonation level is pretty high but it works, especially with that touch of champagne flavor coming out. Really crisp and refreshing. ABV doesn't really translate at all in the feel. Has just a touch of dryness to it. Aftertaste is a really lingering apple flavor.

D: Its not bad at all. The high carbonation really makes this go down easy and smooth drinking. Sits pretty light. The flavors and aromas are pretty damned decent. I could easily kill a few of these and that might be a bad idea if this is actually 8%. A worthy brew that was a pretty good experience.

A - Pours a super light, clear yellow color. Looks like a macro sort of . Small, but thick white head sits on top. Decent retention.

S - Very spicey, not in the hot way. Tons of belgian spices with coriander, nutmeg, and all spice. Sort of fruity and slightly citrusy. Bready malts. Some warming alcohol. This is a wit?

T - Starts with lots of belgian yeast and belgian spices. Cardamom, coriander, nutmeg and all spice. Full biscuity malt backbone. Estery alcohol presence. This is no witbier.

M - Medium bodied with a big smooth creamy feel.

D - I warmed up on this beer.

Served In: Pint Glass
