On tap served into a pint glass

Rereveiwed on 11 27 12 bottled, in weizen glass

A - Clear dark amber with 3 finger khaki head with excellent lacing and fantastic head retention, poured 20 min and still had 1 finger head.

S - No surprises malty and brown sugar. Caramel and a little coriander spicy notes as well. Loads of fresh piney hops.

T - Nice sweet flavors with earthy saltiness but heavy wheat and caramel. Very sweet on the front palate, great malt profile, really showcasing the sweetness here. Sharp strong bitter piney hops finish that fades rapidly. Bit of warming booze on the back end but pretty well balanced considering the 10% ABV, though this does become a bit too prominent as the beer warms.

M - Medium body, medium carbonation, crisp

O - Very nice beer, captures the brown sugar sweetness while still maintaining that signature Lagunitas hoppy fresh finish. I really love this beer, a great seasonal and I could drink this anytime, though I like the Sucks a bit more.

Nice, bright amber color with a sticky light brown head. Aroma of caramelized fruit and brown sugar. Taste is more sugar and fruit, with a light bit of hops that really brings balance to the beer. Sweet and sticky, but not cloying.

Pretty delicious.
