Very little head (<1 finger), and looks not-so lively, yet there is plenty of carbonation visible in the lighter than expected amber brew. Fairly clear bordering on transparent. Almost a sickly color.

Strong whiff of caramel malts and some Belgian-style yeast; overall mild scent.

Very sweet! Belgian candi dominates; the caramel malt is more of a background flavor. There's a slight bright but unidentified hoppiness.

Very light mouthfeel; a little bit of sting; very nice cloying (but not oily) residue. Thin enough to drink quickly, if that's your thing; no aftertaste.

This beer was super underwhelming...until the first taste. It's certainly a malt-forward beer, but it's well-balanced for the style, sweet, and extremely drinkable. I'm not going out of my way to get it, but I definitely wouldn't hesitate to order it at a pub.

No bottle date.

Pours nicely with very little head. Amber coloring looked gorgeous with the newly-emerged sun shining through the windows and through the glass. It was a hot, stormy day here in SWFL today and this was the beer I reached for to unwind after it all calmed down. A great afternoon / early evening beer. I've had it both poured into a glass as well as straight from the bottle several times over the past few weeks and have never been disappointed. Paired it with sausage and pepper pizza and some (very hot) hot wings - went very well with both!

The bottle states those who enjoy the beer love it for "its most intriguing quality, true drinkability." I heartily agree with this statement. It is a light beer in taste without being TOO light. Smell is not overpowering - slight hop emerging from malty goodness.

Very highly recommended (especially to those of you whom enjoy organic beer). However a note to Florida Beer Aficionados: most seem to miss this on the bottle but it is actually brewed for Inlet Brewing Company in Jupiter by Thomas Creek in South Carolina. I was a little sad to see that pop up on the side of the bottle (didn't notice it as first - it was given to our office as a "welcome to Florida, here are our local goodies" gift so the giver didn't apparently notice as well).
