Light golden body with a crowning soapy white head. A little hoppy aromas. The taste was both yeast and the citrus hops under its power. Above average mouthfeel. However, a bomber is too much for me.

750ml caged&corked bottle. Pours cloudy orange gold with very thick offwhite head that slowly fades to a thin disc and leaves spots and streaks of lace. Aroma is malty with herbal hints and light citrus, slightly musty, and some slightly peppery phenol characters. Flavor starts bready malty with hints of must and spice. Bready with subdued barnyard funk and light earthy balancing bitterness towards midpalate. Light malt sweetness balances a moderately dry toasty complex (fruit, spice, and yeast) finish. Mouthfeel is rich and creamy from high carbonation. Body is medium full. Overall a very pleasant and complex ale. Superb.

Approx 12 oz draft pour at The Beer Bistro in Chicago, Illinois. Pour is a ruby golden, mostly clear with a one inch white head. Aroma of Belgian perfume spice clove yeastiness, along with some citrus hops. Taste is a nice blend of apricot citrus hops and the soft perfume clove Belgian yeast. Malt is around, but certainly in the background. Nice balance, clean taste. Palate is thin to medium, soft natural carbonation and a long yeasty aftertaste. Nice.
