3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy light orange with a sudsy white head. The aroma has fruity Belgian yeastiness, spice, ripe peaches, pale malt and a nice cleanness. It has a light body that has a little bit of helf, but still crisp and gentle sharp carbonation. The flavor has some of the fruitiness, but it is much drier - it has more of a lightly under-ripe apricot presence. There is a also pepper, herbs, grass, light sulfur and a bit of floral notes. The finish has a bit of bread and granola and snappy herbal bite. Very enjoyable sessionable beer.
