Man, this was good. Is it a hoppy saison? A yeasty Pale? Some weird American/Belgian hybrid? Lots of nice assertive hops mixe delicate floral and citrus notes. Very complex, but also refreshing. I liked it a lot. Thanks to rougeau13 for the trade!

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - SEP 19, 2012
750 ml bottle. Clear medium yellow body at the first pour, with a huge, frothy/fizzy, lightly lacing, mostly lasting, white head. The aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs, apricot), lightly to moderately yeasty (earth, barnyard), with notes of perfume and hay. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. LIght to medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, dry and average length finish with about medium bitterness. It’s got some potential, already expressed in the aroma, but not in the other aspects. Overly mild flavor, and kinda thin and light bodied. After each sip I keep getting a light lemony soap/detergent impression, which I’m not properly into. Overall absolutely not bad, however.

Bottle shared by Dean. Poured a hazed orange body with a larger foamy off white head. Aroma of yeast, honey and grains, white grapes and tropical and citrus fruits with some spiciness. Medium bodied with average to slghtly softer carbonation and a shorter duration on the aftertaste. Flavor is similar to the aroma with grains, yeast, grapes, bread crusts, honey, maple and rye spiciness. Solid beer overall.
