A munster alt. Pours an amber color with ok clarity. Limited head but ok retention.

The nose is light with a hint of malt. Some light fruity notes. A hint of pear and apricot. Some minor yeast notes but mostly clean. A light hop note as well.

The taste is similar. The malt balances well with the phenolics. Some hints of caramel with the light fruity note. Apricots and pear. A hint of sourness on the back end but light. No real hop note.

The body is light to moderate. They used acidulated malt on the end to dry it out as well as provide the hint of sourness.

Overall a rare style but still a pretty easy drinking summer beer.

i had quite a few by this point but...ill rely on what little notes i took

appearance - dark amber in color with a decent head that sticks around

smell - malts come first, some citrus and apple as well. hops take the back end very nicely

taste - follows the nose, nicely made

mouthfeel - interesting, not quite what i expected, really easy to drink. good body with solid carbonation and a dry finish, pretty crisp all around
