Taste NotesTaste is creamy with "Blue Moon" like flavors. Goes down real nice. Creamy head that lasts. Overall GREAT beer. Vanilla is good addition.
NotesDid not get good boil. May want to try with good 60-90 min boil and see if this improves. Will be a real winner of so as it is good now. Lager-ed 10 bottles, 2 with chilly peppers. Opened one and it was flat so took all out of fridge, shook and left in 70deg area. Check these for taste and other differences.
Color: more yellow than whitish (maybe boil?) cloudy as expected
Smell: Initially REINGOLD! Later more "Belgian" like
Taste: Nice tingle, vanilla, orange , creamy with classic Belgian like finish (Duval, Trimins)
Added 1/2 bean maybe try full bean next time. Continue to extract the inner part of the bean to boil at 5 min mark.
Try all grain next?
