I didn’t put this in my beer cellar list, so I’m not sure when I got it. If I had, I’d have cracked a low-alcohol hoppy beer much sooner. Pour is just noticeably darker than the usual golden Belgian pale lager. Lots of floaty bits, I’m guessing hop bits rather than yeast? Aroma is nice, but it’s nice for a sweet Belgian pale, nit much trace of hop. But then there’s the taste. It is bitter as advertised, just the peppery noble hop bitterness. Backed by a dryly fermented malt that just gives this the nice feel of a beer. Something your Bud-drinking uncle might enjoy if he gets curious about those funny looking beers you have.

Very light color with some haze, beautiful dense white head. Nose is candy sugar and musty with lemon peel notes. Taste is hoppy with lemon peel, botanical notes and salinity. Low carbonation, medium bodied. Finish is a bit tart and a bit dry. Very nice!
