3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into a tulip glass. Pours with an enormous white head of foam on top of a pale copper beer. Great lacing and retention. The aroma is reminiscent of a hoppy saison with some pine, floral, herbal qualities on top of a sweet belgian caramel candy, sweetness. The yeast is doing its part. Dry finish. Very good beer and interesting in the way of Belgian IPAs.
