pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 8, 2013
On tap at blackback... Pours a hazy pale light hay resembling brown and topped with. A creamy white head... Pale grain, lightly bready, and a decent Belgian yeast profile. Touch of lemon and mint on the backend... Pale bready with a lighter somewhat subtle banana yeasty note. Earthy to some degree with a semi-sweet middle. Lightly bitter backend with some lemon accents. Lighter bodied with softer carbonation. Drinkable and more than adequate

Golden and cloudy. Nice head retention Very herbal nose. Oranges and clover honey. Mild nose overall Very soft and delicate. Nice bitterness at the finish. It has this floral element that’s really interesting. I can’t pinpoint the spiciness but its spicy in an herbal way. It’s a very drinkable beer. Certainly something I want to try again.

Tap at Blackback Pub & Flyshop, 07/26/2013. Pours hazy orange, thin white head rests in a creamy haze on the surface, light lacing. Aroma is a cloud of yeast and fluffy bread malts, ripe pear and subtle orange, soft herbal finish, mild spices. Taste is cereal malts, floral citrus and lemon, definitely some American hops thrown in, fruity, spicy herbal notes, nice lingering mild bitterness. Medium, creamy body. Great, definitely a top notch Belgian ale and a step (or two) above average for the style.

Draft at Pig. Pours ultra hazy straw gold with not much lace or heady to note. Aromas and flavor of basil, earth tea, lemon zest, well water, pollen, yeast, florals and lemongrass. Medium to fuller body, long lasting and layered with flavors. Amazing.
