Cloudy honey color. Blanket of dense foam atop. Looks nice. Looks familiar.

Softer aromas of apple, orange, and pear. Very nutty yeast content. Bready notes and a hint of banana. Malts are nearly wheaty. Very pale, very fruity.

Following the aroma with more pear and orange and nuttiness. Nice and strong. Yeasty and supple. A little powdery. More chewy bread and almond. An excellent standard.

Uber-creamy and delicate. Dried-up bubbles remain in the mouth after a semi-viscous body washes down. Right amount of strength.

Great BSPA. Wish it hadn't been this long between visits.

Pours a rich straw color that is lightly cloudy. Has a light and creamy inch-and-a-half head. Head dissipates to a quarter-inch coating with active carbonation and adequate lacing.

Sweet, warm vanilla and banana aromas with some pervasive warm yeast smells.

A little funkier than I had anticipated with pineapple flavors and some crisp hop notes with a little touch of banana and over-ripe fruit.

Warm, sweet, and round up front with nice yeast and rotten citrus. Dry finish with aforementioned funkiness in the back of the throat. Really nice with quite a bit going on.

Outstanding beer. Good carbonation, beautiful head, cool bottle, and surprising complexity. I had never had an opportunity to try this beer before despite the fact that it is quite famous and I was really impressed. Would drink again. Would seek out.

P: 11.2oz bottle into a tulip glass.

A: A cloudy golden yellow with a two finger fluffy white head. There's a little yeast floating in there as well. The head dissolves into a light coating and lacing is sparse.

S: A lot of hay and grass with some tart fruit. A little honey comes through as it warms.

T: Sweet malt and fruit that finishes with a little bite. More hop bitterness than I would have expected but it cuts through the malt. Easy drinking up front but a little too harsh at the end.

M: Fairly dry with good carbonation. Flavors do not linger.

O: Not overly complex, what you smell is what you taste. It's a good beer flavor-wise but not quite smooth enough to keep me wanting to come back.
