The beer sort of looks like apple juice in the glass. It’s somewhat hazy, and is a golden-orange color. There wasn’t much head to speak of, and what was there disappeared in a hurry. The little sliver of head that was left, however, had pretty decent lacing.
The alcohol is pretty present, but not overwhelming. There’s also a good amount of Belgian spiciness. There’s a little citrus aroma, as well as some sweet apple. There’s some spicy hop aroma and fruitiness, but after awhile it’s hard to get past the alcohol.
This has a distinct, unusual taste – but it’s pleasant. That apple flavor is present, but not in a sour way. It’s more of a sweet red apple flavor. The bitterness isn’t too overpowering, and only shows up at the end. There’s a bit of some citrus and spiciness from the hops. After it warms up, the alcohol becomes present.
This beer has a surprising body. It’s not huge, but it definitely ha some residual sugars. That being said, it’s pretty easy-drinking. The alcohol makes you hesitate a little, but it’s not hot at all.
One of the better Belgian IPAs that I have had. It doesn’t have a huge “Belgian” flavor, nor a huge IPA flavor. But it is quite tasty for what it is. The label has a couple of, uhh, “dudes” swimming towards a big egg. I’m not sure what this means, or what exactly is being fertilized, but this imagry does not reflect the flavor of the contents of the bottle. I’ll leave it at that.
SCORE: ★★★ 3/5
