3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours light yellow with a big white head. Aroma is lemon, yeast and a hint of spice. Mouth feel is thin, but lively with carbonation. Flavor matches the nose with lemon, bread and spice flavors. There is a bit more floral hop in the flavor than in the nose. Finish is slightly bitter, but not unpleasant. I really enjoyed this a lot.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Carefully decanted into a Duvel chalice the body is a cloudy light blonde with an enormous vanilla head. Silky sheets of lacing complete the stunning presentation. Aroma of lemony citrus, kiwi, and hints of orange and banana. Floral and herbal notes chime in as do spicy hints of pepper and coriander. Exceptional palate, with the satiny pastoral carbonation that is so vibrant. Taste is dry and herbal, with hints of lime peel, orange, and kiwi. A peppery bite leads into floral and herbal hops. Very pastoral and idyllic. Topnotch!
