Draft sample at CBW AKA Minx. Poured cloudy copper color with an average fizzy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate to heavy complex yeast and floral hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy tropical bitter hop flavor with a medium to heavy bitter finish of moderate to long duration. This is a good beer that exceeded my expectations.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep amber pour with a tight white head. The nose is soft and the aroma is perfumy. The yeast really comes through. Chewy and a little bit earthy. Softly fruity with a nice sweet hoppiness and assertive bitterness. Minerally and fairly lean. Dry and well-balanced with a lot of nice fruit on the finish. A bit citrusy and tropical. It’s sweeter than the Ryevalry, but still dry. Soft Belgian fruitiness throughout.
