3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy deep golden pour with a magnanimous white head. Aroma holds lots of bready yeast, grassy hop, and tons of sage and other herbal notes. Flavor is much the same, with again dominant herbal presence mixed with some white grapefruit and lemon. Interesting, and very close to too herbacious for me, but still quite nice. Crisp palate. Pretty nice stuff.

bomber had after dinner. Golden cloudy color with a head that faded even with a vigouous pour. The aroma was a belguim yeast perfume with orange. Also got lots of grassiness and hay aroma. The taste was a light sweetness with a meduim bitter into the ending. Easu drinking texture and did not notice the high abv at all.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A - Pours a bright hazy golden-orange color with a think finger of frothy head. The head fades fairly slowly down to a spotty layer leaving some heavy lace on the glass.
S - Nice citrus flavors (lemon peel) and some nice light spices. Also some Belgian yeast, grassy aromas, banana, and other light fruits mixed in.
T - Starts off with some light citrus hops and some banana flavor. Some Belgian yeast in the background. Through the middle some stronger yeast flavor alongside some yeast and spices come through. Finishes with a mix of light citrus flavor, spices, and just a touch of hops that linger nicely.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels really crisp and smooth without being watery at all. Finish is really smooth and pleasant.
D - Very drinkable. The 8.5% abv is not noticeable at all. Nice blend of flavors with a nice addition of a touch of hops. Really smooth and well balanced.

Med + body with very frothy carbonation. Flavor is citrus, yeast/spice, and for a passing moment Fleers bubble gum. Then it goes a little herby. Then floral. This seems really dry to me. Like it.
