Pours a hazy golden with a ton of floaties all over...head was medium, bubbly white left some lacing. Aroma of yeast, citrus, various Belgian spicey esters, some bready pilsner type malts.

2.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
12oz. Bottle: Sweet aroma. Smells of spices, coriander, yeast, floral hops, and peach. Poured yellow/gold in color with a small white head that diminished. Cloudy. Lots of tiny particles. Sparkling. Lightly bitter, very earthy flavor. Tastes of horse blanket, grass, black pepper, and yeast. I really do not like the flavor. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Barnyard-tasting finish. Overall, I don’t like this one.

Drank right from the brewery. It was a bit to cold so most of the flavors were hidden. It poured a dark yellow with a slight haze. Tasted like Belgian yeast and spices. Finished smooth with a slight heat and warming sensation.
