A: Medium golden amber to lighter orange hazy tint. Superior 2 finger, foam like head that last 5+minutes and contributes good lacing.

S: Very enticing blend of sour and sweet. Lots of tropical fruit. Guava pound cake, pineapple, orange. Some earthy and mildew musk.

M: Fuller bodied, quite dry, medium carbonation. Warming alcohol

T: Pine needles, caramel, bready malt, grapefruit, citrus pith. Good bitter punch, mostly herbal. Brandy-like alcohol components, fully fermented apricots and pear
