Amber haze with a white, sticky head that mostly settles soon after the pour. Great balance of sweet malt and hops in the nose. Just a bit fruity and peat-like. With a taste, I literally become wide-eyed... what is this I'm tasting? Could it be? Pistachio! Right in the middle of the palate, a very clear pistachio-like character. Something I've never experienced in a beer before. Before I start ranting about loving pistachios, I'd better move on to the other characteristics. Sweetness from the malt, balanced well by the hops, as in the nose. Bread-like toasted malt character abound, especially with retro-olfaction. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel that is both crisp from the hops and grainy from the malt. I'm really enjoying the unique character of this beer. Very flavorful and just plain enjoyable all the way through.
