Cloudy orangish pour, white head. Tripel or imperial blue moon? I really felt as if I was drinking a jacked up blue moon. It looked a lot the same and tasted a lot the same. Dont get me wrong, it was better than a blue moon, but not by tons.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
bottle. heavily hazed golden wheat body, small white head, yeast does not come out of suspension. might guess about some sour mash wheat and malt here, there’s a lot of minerals / salted lemon / dish soap / tart citrus acid in the nose, but there’s also some coriander / ginger / peppercorn notes that are affecting it. syrupy, sweet, Belgian-style golden ale, that’s about what it is. but it becomes terribly sweet and juicy - making me salivate and gleek - and the oily and syrupy sugar just sits permanently in the mouth. dang. have to say the nose had promise but the flavor and texture - goopy, syrupy, cloying - ruin it for me.
