Taste Notes

3/27/13 Nice arroma, straw in color, slightly thin with a mildly bitter taste and some alcohol present. Bitterness may be the bitter orange peel. 4/23/13 The Belgian arroma with some spice, phenol esters, and fruity. Light to little hop aroma. Straw in color and fairly clear for the first pint, slight chill haze. Might need a little more carbonation, head was nice, but disipated quickly, Meduim to light mouthfeel. Starts out tasting some fruity sweetness along with some spice. No alcohol burn, nice smooth with a citrus, spice taste. Finishes somewhat dry. No off flavors or aromas.

Notes

Substituted Styrian Goldings for the EKG finishing hops. Gravity reading out of mash was low by 1 point. Trouble with hitting initial temp at 141 vs 151F. Added .5 gallon boiling water, which raised temp to 145F. Added 1 gallon of boiling water to raise temp toe 153.7. Stirred until mash was 152.0. Decreased sparge water by 1.5 gallons. 3/1 Still some activity and bubbles on surface. Temp 68F. 3/10 Starting to clear up nicely. Temp stil at 68.8F. 3/27/13 Kegged with 2.2 oz of corn sugar. Finished at 1.011 right on target.
