Nose: light grain, a hint of sulfur.
Brilliant straw, 2” fluffy bone white foam cap.
Creamy, light bodied, above average carbonation.
Palate: light grains, creamy, slight vegetal, crisp hop finish.
Refreshing with a good balance between the hops and the malts.

Nice golden bright color with a thin head but keeps a constant plate.
Light aroma with notes of peaches, bread and butter (DMS), sulfur, melon and lemon sourness.
Flavor with lots of nectarines, spices, oranges, lager yeast, herbal hops, tobacco and peaches. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light body with proper carbonation.
Very fruit beer with a slight tartness, though something was out of balance here.
