From tasting notes 10-26-11
Poured into a tulip glass

Appearance: Almoste completely off-white foam on the pour--this one gushed on me and actually overflowed out of the tulip glass and the bottle (would not recommend an aggressive pour). The beer is cloudy golden yellow in appearance with a twinge of orange. The head settles slowly and there is a nice big puff of head retained in the center, and there are sticky patches of thin lace all over the glass.

Smell: Spicey hops and a very pleasant yeast aroma that imparts a dynamic fruitiness to the beer (consisting of pear, pineapple and green apple). Overall the aroma is good but a bit subdued.

Taste: Some fruitiness up front, then a lot of nice yeasty flavor followed by a blast of alcohol and some more yeast and then some spice, some crisp clean pine, and a warming finish.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium in body with high carbonation and a nice, smooth finish. Good feel.

Overall: Very alcoholic, but in a very pleasant way. Smooth, refreshing, and an excellent beer. If only it were more affordable ...

Serving type: bottle
