Hard to tell where the hop aroma ends and the yeast character begins. Bold floral hop aroma, Medium stone fruit, peach, pear. Low malt sweetness. No dms. No diacetyl
10 / 12

Appearance:
Dark straw approaching light gold. Fairly clear. Dense head of very fine white foam. Collapses quickly, but remnants persist, leaves thick lacing on the glass.
3 / 3

Flavor:
Low bready sweet malt flavor. Bold floral hop aroma and moderately bittered. Balanced to hops. Fruit flavors reminiscent of peach, some spicy notes. Bitterness and floral character linger on the palate.
16 / 20

Mouthfeel:
Medium light body, fizzy high carbonation lends a crisp finish. Low alcohol warmth. No astringency.
5 / 5

Overall:
An excellent beer, Well executed, harmonious balance. Nice use of hop flavor and aroma to replace traditional Belgian spices. Slight alcohol warmth is a minor detractor. Consider pitching more yeast, adding o2, controlling temperature during fermentation to reduce.
