4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2012 Pours a thick white head leaving little sheeting. Color is a clear golden brown. The nose is dominated by a yeasty spiceness. Palate reveals a medium body with dryness and a slight toastiness with a lingering hoppy finish that separates this brew from a malty Belgian. The Belgian yeast adds complexity. Tasted at the brewery and in a growler.

Sampled at the 2012 American Craft Beer Festival. Pretty hoppy for the style, with a good amount of yeast and malts.

Pours hazy deep amber into a tulip. White head recedes to skim surface leaving scant sheets. Sweet citrus and yeast aromas. Dry with caramel upfront turning to tangerine before the lasting dusty yeast finish.

On tap at Atwood’s Tavern - Cambridge, MA. Leafy, hoppy aroma that blends with a very punch and spicy Belgian yeast. There’s a bitter bite to this and it doesn’t seem to come straight out of the hops, instead from some of that acerbic, slightly medicinal, herbal yeast character. I founds the hoppiness quiet enjoyable, but could not quite jive with the yeast character. Overall, it was generally drinkable.
