4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2012 Aroma / Bouquet: Malt- breadiness. Hops- floral, grassy, citrus, fresh. Yeast- dough. Other- herbal. Appearance: Color- pale golden. Head- dense, white foam, great lacework. Taste- excellent dry hoppiness, grapefruit, dry citrus. Palate: Body- medium. Texture- slick. Carbonation- very well carbonated, very lively, hits the front and the back of the tongue. Finish- dry, citrus, herbal hoppiness. My overall impression, it certainly deserves the 98 rating. Similar to St. Bernardus, but more citrusy. I would pair with mussels, white sauces for pasta, chicken, blue cheeses.
