11.2 oz bottle, poured into a tulip glass.
A: Pristine golden color, with a slight, interesting and entertaining haze of floating yeast specks. Two finger head starts out full and bubbly, but eventually diminishes to a respectable (and pretty) 1/4-inch head that retains all the way to the end.
S: Upon first whiff, you detect some common orchard fruits; pear, apple. There's a slight spiciness that my nose couldn't decipher. The alcohol is apparent, but is respectably mild and well incorporated into the scent. It's almost a warning that this delicacy is not to be trifled with.
T: Deliciously fruity. Apples, pears, slight citrus, and if my tongue doesn't deceive me, maybe a hint of peach? The fruitiness doesn't last long, as you're hit with a surprise wave of spice and yeast. The fruit becomes an undertone as the beer makes its way down. The alcohol is a tad noticeable upon first sip, but it takes the backseat for the most part.
M: Overall pretty crisp, but it seems a little over-carbonated. Possibly just a fluke, but it is a bit of a hinderance to the flavors.
O: I went for this beer on an honest and truthful whim. I had heard its name before, but never looked into it. Boy, was it a treat. Complex flavors, pleasing aroma, and an all around treat to drink. Just be careful, however... It goes down far too easy for a beer with its alcohol content!
As an added note, the opaque gray and black speckled bottle really builds suspense as you're getting ready to pop the top and pour. I've never been more excited to pour a beer.
