When you pour this beer you don't perceive the magic it holds because it has a very light copper/yellow color that does not look like a ten percent brew. Head is also light but enough to display the beautiful aroma to follow.
When you take the first sniff you realize you have something special here. Grapefruit and orange notes jump from the glass with a hint of peach and pear. Sweet!
The taste is amazing! Everything you get in the aroma with a nice bitterness that emulates that of a white grapefruit; coats the back of your throat without dominating your entire pallet.
Again, the 10% brew does not have the mouth feel of one. It is light in body without the common "syrup" like feel of a beer with this amount of alcohol. Smooth and drinkable!
You could have many of these because they are so light and fruity. They would be terrific on a summer day... just keep your head on straight, it may sneak up and slam you down.
