The only Fibonacci I know is that guy with the accent from Prison Break.
What did Miss Daisy do to him?
I hate you.
|Aroma - The aroma is all malt and yeast. There's no denying it's a Belgian from the phenolic and fruity yeast that comes across as tart grapefruit/lemon character. Trust me when I say the grapefruit is from the yeast, not the hops. The malts are bready, very bready with wheat being very present and the spiciness of the rye used in the beer coming through as well.|
|Appearance - The beer is a clear light gold with a thin, white head made up of small bubbles that form around the edge, leaving a wide, clear circle in the center of the glass.|
|Flavor - The beer is very well-balanced although it is a touch on the sweet side. The yeast helps to manage the sweetness by adding some complexity and depth the overall flavor profile. The yeast has just a touch of clove which again aids in breaking up the sweetness from the malt. The malts is a very light caramel but it's pie crust and white bread predominantly. There is a kick from the rye right at the end that smacks the back of your tongue as you swallow.|
|Mouthfeel - The carbonation is medium+ and the body is medium. It's full on the tongue but has a nice sparkle from the carbonation that is quite enjoyable.|
|Overall Impression - For a gimmick like the Fibonacci sequence, I didn't have high hopes for this beer. It was quite good. It's got a lot of flavor from the yeast but it doesn't overwhelm and it's quite easy to drink. I would love to sip this outdoors in warm weather (which I can probably do for a few more weeks) but once it's cold out, it would still work really well with some shrimp pasta with white sauce.|
