4.18/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: I poured this one so slowly…and it just kept on foaming. The head peeked around four fingers worth. You could just see the carbonation rushing up from the bottom making adding to the large soapy bubble head. Its a moderately clouded honey color filled with carbonation…damn. The head leaves soap like lacing.

Aroma: Smells rather malty and fruity with a yeasty sweetness. As it warms the yeast smell grows.

Taste: Soft sweet fruits taste with bread and spices mixed in. As it warms the wild yeast starts to come through but without the funk. Not a really strong taste, but a great balance of flavors thats really easy to drink especially being 9% ABV.

Palette: Real soft with a lot of carbonation. Dry with almost no after taste.

Overall: I was pleasantly surprised at how much I like this beer. Not overly complex, but a wonderful blend of subtle flavors make a sweet, interesting, easy to drink strong ale.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

1 PINT 9.4FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a snifter
Bottled 12/4/12

A - This beer is pale yellow in color with a slight haze. It is topped with a mountain of fluffy, white head. Chunks of foam cling to the sides of the glass.

S - I get light fruit notes. Pear comes to mind. I smell some spices as well.

T - The taste follows the smell. I get spices and pear. I do get a little alcohol.

M - Moderate

O - It is a nice beer, but it is not outstanding for the style. The taste and smell are a bit on the weak side. It drinks easily though.
