Appearance is a blond, champagne-colored bubbly ale with an off-white head up top. Epic retention, but little in the way of lacing. Very appealing to the eyes. The nose is also pleased, as fruity notes prevail (oranges, plums, raisins, peach, and alcohol) alongside a solid backbone of light, crystal malts. Very well balanced aroma.

The taste is intricate yet mild, which is not a knock against the beer. Some organic, spiced notes are immediately present, along the lines of wood or grass. The hops are floral and peppery. This is balanced by a light, almost sweet butterscotch/vanilla note. The active carbonation gently washes over the palate and adds to the taste. Great drinkability, great beer, and one I will be returning to as frequently as I can find it.

Price: $11.00 Served In: Wine Glass
