Pours crystal clear with minimal snow white, Belgiansque foam. Retention is below average for an IPA with similar lacing.
Aroma has citrus but seemingly from orange peel. Belgian yeast notes are strong as well. Hops aren't really that prevalent.
Taste brings about the same from the aroma. The citrus is orange peel in nature, Belgian yeast: clove and banana. Slight pine. Bitterness in the finish while the hops in the same place are soapy in nature.
Light body and carbonation that is medium.
This beer reminds me of a Belgian Wit complimented by some hops and hops that are my favorite on top of a beer style that isn't my favorite. I like Pipeworks but this one doesn't do it for me. Enjoy!
"Well ya see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers." - Cliff Clavin, of Cheers
