4.5/5  rDev +6.4%

Reviewed from notes from a blind tasting

A: Pours a clear golden amber with a slight tan head of large bubbles. Nice clarity (4.5)

S: Sweet grapes, fig, dates, candied, and a hint of peppery spice. (4.5)

T/M: Light/medium mouthfeel with very high carbonation level. Sweet and fruity throughout with a very slight bitterness to balance. Grape juice and candy up front lead into fig and a candy sugar finish. (4.5/4.5)

O: Very nice. High carb actually makes this super drinkable for what it is, and the peppery spice with a year of age on it melds beautifully with the beer.

From notes on 12/12/13

Very sweet smell. Kind of like bubble gum. Nice shiny brown pour. Awesome taste. Sweet, malty, caramel, and bananas. Very fine beer.
