4.58/5 rDev +6.8%
Pours a hazy honey/orange color with a medium whige head...nice lacing. Aroma has grapefruit, grass, herb, and nice mild piney notes. Flavor follows suit...great distinctive citrus and stonefruit flavors...just a bit more pine than the aroma suggests...perfect bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is piney/bitter and dry...lingers nicely. Wow!

"VIP Blend" keg served on Friday night of Second Anniversary party. This was half a keg of What is Enlightenment? that was topped off with Abner in attempt to make Abner "more sessionable" (6.8, don't tell Ding).
For all the tickers out there, I dare you to be honest and at least acknowledge if you created a bastard version yourself and not had the keg from the party.
Look is the same as either of the base beers, hazed golden color with a large, frothy white head; long lasting retention and light lacing. Aroma is highlight of this concoction, blending the best of both beers; citrus bomb, more sweet than bitter, with orange, grapefruit and mango balanced with light lemon and pine, and sweet malt. Medium thick body, effervescent carbonation with a near perfect mouthfeel. Flavor leans more toward Abner than WiE, but is much drier, almost distractingly so. Not as sweet and juicy as the nose, with a stronger piney and floral aftertaste. I'd still prefer fresh Abner, but more interesting than WiE.
