12 oz bottle. Pours brilliant golden with short-lived white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of funky yeast, biscuit malt, pears, apples and herbal hops. Body is full and crisp. Taste is of funky yeast, spices, peppery hops, biscuit malt and ripe fruit. Finish is long and spicy. Overall it is nice brew.

On draft

Appearance: lemon yellow, small head, and good lacing.

Smell: fermenting fruit, some malt, and a faint yeast.

Taste: light grain, malt, and a light fermenting fruit.

Mouthfeel: medium-light.

Overall:
This is a decent brew. It is a little on the watery side, but it isn't exactly watery.
