<i>On tap at the brewpub.</i> Served in a tulip, filled to the point that there was little room for head. Clear dark golden with 1/4 finger off-white head, fading a a thick ring and thin film. Hoppy up front with piny hops and grapefruit. Belgiany yeast, bananas, and some spicy pepper round out the aroma. Flavor has the same hop profile and Belgian notes with some lightly sweet candi sugar. It did turn slightly grassy a ways through the glass. Finish was semi-dry with bitterness peaking around a 5-6. Burps pine and a hint of plastic. Moderate carbonation with a medium body. Very good beer--the girlfriend liked it quite a bit as well. Will grab a growler next time I’m at the brewpub to rerate at home--my schnoz didn’t seem at it’s best when I was there earlier tonight.
