750ml bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy pale golden with a fluffy eggshell white head that leaves great lacing and retention. The aromas are very clean. Lots of yeast along with light citrus notes. Cherries are there. Some malts there too. Flavors are very clean and sharp. Lots of fresh fruit. More light citrus notes along with hints of pear and green apple. Some banana in the mix. More cherries. Very subtle bitterness. It's on the sweeter side. Hints of black pepper. Alcohol basically goes unnoticed. The mouthfeel and carbonation is world-class. It's full-bodied with active carbonation, but remains extremely creamy and fluffy. It feels much lighter than it real is. This is dangerously drinkable.

This is a classic craft beer staple. You can never go wrong with this one.

Purchased at The Beer Store $90.00 for 24pk of 330ml bottles. Served at 5deg C in a challis

A- 4.25- Opens with a ton of head that lasts. Very light golden color.

S- 4.0- Lots of malt. Sweet and peppery

T- 4.0- A bit metallic. Other than that bready, yeasty and a bit of malt.

M- 4.0- Pretty good. Light and low heat for this high alcohol percentage.

O- 4.12- This is my real score. Nice beer but that metallic taste just shines through. Will try a few more and see what happens.

Food Pairing

This nice little beer went well with....... Roast pork. Nice little porketta roast and a touch of yellow mustard!

Enjoy
