Reddish-copper color with slight chill haze. Off-white frothy 2 finger head with medium retention.
Orange peel, carambola, melba toast, gingersnaps and a very mild dankness.
Honeysuckle, tropical fruit, candied orange zest, light brown sugar, allspice, light clove notes, pineapple; citrus and a slight resin quality keep everything clean.
Medium bodied, almost-but-not-quite-creamy mouthfeel. Moderate level of carbonation and bitterness, with the bitterness holding on very late into the finish.
This beer really picks up on the palate. Not at all what I would expect after the nose. Truly interesting and makes you want to go back in for another sip. While several of the descriptors would make you think that the beer would be sweet, it manages to come up to the edge without going over. The beer actually finishes slightly on the bitter side.
I honestly don't know that I would want to drink it all night, but it would be a great beer anytime as part of a line-up.
