Pours a really big puffy head into my snifter, with a clean copper body, and that head releases quite a lovely resiny pine aroma, with some orange zest floating about.
Taste follows the aroma with sappy pine and zest, with a sweet malt backbone with some pear and ever so slight kiss of alcohol, but hops are really the center stage in this one.
Mouthfeel is slightly syrupy, but not as much as other bigger BWs, and the Hops help leave a bit cleaner finish then most, but in exchange leave a slightly resiny coating.
The lower %...at least i consider 9.2% lower for the style.... helps keep drinkability up, and the flavor doesn't get boring.
