Appearance: stray colored pale gold, heady white froth on first poor which resolves to a consistent white lace; ample fine carbonation

Smell: Strong yeast and phenolic and medicinal odors, ripe apple, honey suckle and hint of marigold. Maybe a whiff of freshly turned hay . Sweet malt undertone.

Taste: Sweet, flowery up front with pleasant astringent quality from very active carbonation. Midway through sip, very sweet and a bit syrupy, and zing from the significant alcohol . Taste of over ripe pear, apple, faint hoppy quality. End notes of grain with a clean finish.

Overall: Delicious! Nice complex flavor profile, goes well with most cheeses, drinks like a Chardonnay and pairs well with typically associated foods. Great beer, and one I pick up whenever I encounter it

My current favorite. Sweet at first but finishes dry. Complex.
