3.25/5 rDev -14.2%
On tap at the brewery in San Marcos.
Pours amber with a white head that soon reduces to a ring but leaves some lacing.
Aroma: intriguing fruity aroma with a good malt base; hints of white wine.
Flavor: more funky and less fruity than the aroma, but not challenging to drink. Lightly bitter finish.
Feel: medium body; medium, lightly crisp carbonation.
O: strong (ABV) for style.

This is an extremely drinkable "extra" ale with no bite at the front of the taste. It is very smooth throughout, with just a bit of hops on the back of the tongue, with a bit of tangy citrus as well. The flavor is mild, which is both good and yet also leaves you looking for a bit more taste, too. Well crafted, it's greatest quality is it's smoothness.

750ml into big Duvel tulip.
Cloudy orange body, topped with tightly foamed white head. Tons of lacing.
Aromas are bread-first, followed by some light/bright fruits, like orange and strawberry. Some light grassy funk as it warmed, but stays in the background.
Mouthfeel is quite crisp on the tongue. Not too heavy for the style. Flavors are led by fruits.. white grape and some citrus - light lemon and/or orange. Some white pepper spice keeps it interesting. Finish is pretty darn clean and refreshing. Final touch of sweet orange left on the palate.
Very nice table beer - won't overpower any foods, esp lighter summer fare. Great value for the money, too. Got this corked and caged 750ml for under $9.

A: lighting brown to orange color, very carbonated, 2 fingers worth. Some floaters and I think some coag' d protein
S: malt forward, grassy hops, little bit of spicyness, bready smell
T: earthy, hearty, spicy, little funky, kind of like drinking a warm rustic baked bread, aftertaste lingers
M: does kinda linger in your mouth
O: first experience with this style of beer, was interesting and I'll give gift of the magi by LA a try too
