amber golden color. Kinda watery, but well hidden for 8.5% abv. Bready nose with some apples. Nice, but not overly complex.

Draught at Bashamichi. Malty, grainy nose, peppery, grassy hops. Nice hop nose. Malty, semi-sweet flavor, dry enough, and very hoppy. Yeast not doing so much. Peach, orange. Good stuff. I like the hops, which work differently to a traditional Belgian gold, but very well. Like a clean hoppy tripel.
