Poured into a Birra Moretti goblet. Burping added a little interference to this one, as I'd had beer brats made with a few bottles of Narragansett for supper earlier (and they were
delicious).

A: Honey golden with light platinum gold highlights. Rich stuff. Poured with two+ inches of creamy white foam which shrank away quickly. Foam clings for dear life to the sides of the glass. Attempts to retain free will as individual glob of foam. Some does for a while, but all are re-assimilated back into the colony eventually. There is no escape.

S: Yeasty with notes of banana and citrus.

T: Sweet banana and cloves with a little hop spice on the backend, all amid a faint haze of alcohol, with a citrus tingle that hangs around at your house after the party is over
and shyly asks if you want to make out. Flavors sharpen as the brew warms.

M: Creamy and a touch on the thick side.

O: Been a while since I've had a really fantastic beer. I mean, I got a lot of good beer over the holidays, but nothing that really made me crave another one immediately afterward.
A fantastic beer and one I look forward to having again soon.

Pours a hazy straw yellow with golden brown highlights. A huge pure white head forms and leaves some chunky lacing.

Smell is yeasty, with lemon zest and spice notes that make me happy. Some apple skin is also present.

Taste is at first citrus and tangy yeast. The middle has some malt, and the whole taste has a nice peppery flavor.

Upon first drinking there is a lemony bite to the tongue. Other than that, the beer is nice and smooth. A medium body is lightened up by great bubbly carbonation.

I have enjoyed this beer for years, and will continue to do so. A classic taste, and a great beer, with some power to boot.

DOA

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12 oz bottle poured into a Maudite Snifter

A: Yellowish/Straw amber with 2 finger white head. Lots of small bubbles make up the head. Tons of visible carbonation. Mild lacing on sides of glass. Head remains to the end.

S: Yeasty, citrusy with orange peel. Slight hop aroma on the tail end. Earthy tone on the malt

T: Bready taste with hints of orange. Hints of banana. Underlying hop tones. Nothing drastic in the flavor but very well balanced and drinkable. Not too overpowering with the orange flavor which I like.

M: Smooth body. Tons of carbonation. Does not leave any unpleasant tastes in your mouth.

Overall a wonderful beer at a decent price. My favorite from the brewer.
