Pours a hazy straw color with a mountainous, craggy white head. The aroma smells mildly of apple, pear, and trace amounts of hops. The massive head tempers only slightly as you drink, maintaining itself like a champ. The first thing I notice upon tasting is the intense carbonation, whose prickliness near singes the tongue (though not in a bad way). The flavor is sweet and juicy up front, similar to the aroma, while some bitterness presents on the back end. There is an almost honey-like sweetness that melds with the apple and pear notes. A strong sense of apple peel becomes increasingly evident as it warms, and a slight spiciness begins to manifest in the finish. Hops are tastefully integrated, just enough to lend some balance and complexity. As the session continues, alcohol becomes more present in the aroma, though not so much on the palate, which is impressive for the ABV. Swaths of lacing cling to the glass as the beer recedes. This is a crisp and refreshing brew indeed, and not short on flavor. Hard to find fault here in any regard, and pretty much the grandest head you'll find in a beer. A real winner.

Pours a one finger bubbly white head, hazy golden yellow body. Lots of bubbles rising to the top. Beautiful.
Sweet banana bread, cinnamon, and clove in the aroma. Slight citrus and floral notes.
Some sort of spice-like note on the tongue. Grassy and earthy. Citrus and floral on the back of the tongue. Bit of cinnamon and clove.
Lot's of carbonation, nice smooth mouthfeel.
