SDalkoholic (2371) - Linda Vista, California, USA - FEB 24, 2009
On tap @ Pizza Port Carlsbad: Small and delicate formation of head and a crisp golden blonde color. Flavor contained a spicy character throughout each sip with notices of coriander, pepper, clove, orange peel and oddly enough a background of butter. Aroma was simple and smelled simply of Belgian yeast and not much else to my nose. Very tasty yet light and easily quaffable being that the ABV was above eight percent.
