Poured from the bottle a hazy orange-gold with a very, very thin cap of off-white head around the edge of the glass. No lacing at all.

Aroma of pear juice, pineapple, sweet light malts and yeast.

The taste a combination of both sweet and sour with the asiatic pear juice, pineapple, sweet malts, raisin, candy sugar and some spicy herbs. The 10% abv is pretty well-hidden but still adds a hint of warmth to the palate.

Medium bodied and very dry with a weaker carbonation.

Not too bad. I liked it well enough.

22oz bottle.

Pours clear copper with a quarter inch head of white. Zero lacing with a placid surface for the duration.

Aromatics lead off with bubblegum, pears, apples, and hard candies. Honey-like, fruity, and clovey.

Medium bodied with lightly carbonated mouthfeel. A bit syrupy.

Fruit juice and light malt start the palate. Red apples, pear juice, and clove-dusted bubblegum follow through.

Finishes with fruit cocktail, honey, and candied apples.

Too sweet for me and very much like fermented fruit juice.

Served in fluted tulip. Poured a very attractive, clean, amber color with less than 1/4 inch of head that had medium retention and lacing.

There was a sharp alcohol note at the front of the aroma, with a malt sweetness underneath. There was also a slight fruit (grape?) scent as well. The story was similar on the tongue, nice grains, a hint of fruit and a definite alcohol sting on the finish.

The body was good, solid without being heavy, full and nicely rounded. Drinkability was good, especially for a bigger beer. Overall, a very nice beer. If I see this in bottles I may set a couple aside to let the hotness smooth out. Worth trying if you see it.
