Batch Sparged 2 gallons @ 170 for 15 mins

Primed with Kegged to 3 volumes 6.3% Abv

Look: Dark Gold to light orange, large head that eventually reduces down to a soapy ring that provides decent, but soapy, lacing

Aroma: Spicy, light Belgian style esters, faint smell of caramel

Taste: Very spicy, strong maltiness that is soft and flowing, corriander in the foreground (but not identifiable if I did not know), caraway somewhere melding in with the caramel that is present but an undertone to the maltiness.

Mouthfeel: Light mouthfeel but not at all watery. High carbonation and low FG make this feel like it is evoprating off your tongue

Drinkability: Pretty drinkable, a solid Belgian Pale Ale
