Comes in a caged and corked brown 750 - pours a lovely thick dark lemon gold and settles thick and hazy with a great murky glow of lava lamp yellow when put up to the light. A puffy and creamy off-white yellowed crown sits proudly tall on top and never wavers from its seat. Super thick and intricate sheets of lace sticks all over the glass.Gorgeous.
Aroma is a bit dry with spice and citrusy things and banana, with a light earthy edge of wood and old paper. Brought on by the yeast strain I suppose; very clean overall with a pale sense of lightly mixed fruits and candied sugars.
Taste is delightfully smooth and full of wonderful fruity flavors that aren't overly sweet in any way; ever. More of a pale or dullish like candyness to it. Banana, pineapple. lemon parts, bits of dark orange, and drops of pear. Dryish. Which in turn takes a wonderous display and inter-twines it with a super fine yeast display of slightly dry woods and heavy grasses with spicy little leftovers. Quite a good combo on display here, one never over takes the other and its not a slap in the face with anything either. Very delicate but present in its charm and character with a certain pazazz. Very likeable.
Fairly full bodied and bubbl'n with a solid carbonation, widely smooth across the palate and has lots of energy. Somewhat dry yet maintains a full malt edge and fruity swagger. 10% ABV? Huh? It never makes its presense in any of its character until late, and thats in the Ol' sensory dept. not on the buds or the nose. Damn fine stuff.
