Tasting Notes: Belgian Enkel

My Belgian enkel has been in the keg for a couple of weeks now, and is finally carbonated enough for a proper tasting.

Appearance - straw yellow, crystal clear, with a thin white head.

Aroma - nutmeg, clove, allspice, fresh baked bread, apricots, and plums.

Taste - Lemon, graininess, a little bit of diacetyl.

Mouthfeel - Very thin. High carbonation, but not champagne or soda-like.

Overall Impression - Similar to the patersbiers I've tried, but more breast.

If I brew this again I plan to raise the ABV from 3.5% to 4% and use a fruitier yeast strain.
