Pours sparkling and with champagne effervescence and brilliant clarity. Light straw color, gold, with a terrific head of white foam that sat on top and fell slowly to patterned lacing. Picturesque. The nose is splendid. Fruity with apple and some yeasty spice. Pear, white grape, pepper and clove. Light pale malt underneath fresh grass and a touch of musty earth for depth. Taste is elegant and light. Fruit and spice perfectly matched with a light grain malt that tickled the palate with the sensation of bubbles as the flavors flourish. The body of the beer is soft and creamy, bright and animated. Grassy notes and earth add depth and it sports a touch of white grape to remind one of champagne not only in looks but in taste and in a sparkling dry finish.

Fruits engage the palate and the sour makes the mouth water. The light grain malt sways and bends across the tongue for a feeling that is light and refreshing. The champagne bubbles tickle you and the dry finish is complimentary. There is a touch more alcohol than you might at first realize and that is ticklish too and makes you smile as it warms you. The pear comes out more and the grainy malt starts fluffy but then deepens slightly to remind you of a still life painting with fruit and bread and cheese. This is a work of art. Radiant and pleasing to the senses. Captivating.

Puchased a 1 pint 9.4oz bottle from Costco.

Golden pale color, white head that reamains throught the pour and while drinking. Smell seems off.

Dont understand the bid deal, skunky like most European beers...nothing special.

Good news....gave me a nice buzz.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Beautiful golden color, slightly transparent. Foam not too thick, lacey-like. Small amount of bubbles

Smell is sweet, fruity, almost bubblegum-like. Smell of hop present.

Taste is smooth with a hint of citrus, goes down easily. Surprisingly easy to drink despite the high ABV. Light, refreshing taste. Slightly bitter aftertaste.

Very good pale ale. I would especially recommend this to people who are just exploring more exotic beers.
