Sampling a cellar temp 22 oz bottle poured into a snifter. The beer pours a clear copper color with a large fluffy and frothy bleached white head of 3.5 cm.
The head fades to a thin edge layer fairly rapidly after the pour.
Aroma is bready yeast with some white grapes and pears mixed in with just a little spicy hop character.
FIrst sip reveals a lighter than anticipated body with very fine and tingly carbonation.
Texture is smooth and silky very easy to drink, enjoyable.
The beer gets a little cloudy towards the end of the bottle poured into my glass.
Flavor is grainy malt and some bready yeast, I also get some sweet fruit. Pears and some white grape again, as in the nose. The beer is amazingly drinkable and enjoyable.
I dont get any hint of the booze and the finish is dry and a little sweet.

Quite a nice beer that is perfect for a warmer day, I would pick up bottles of this again.

Pour is lightly hazed golden amber with a tight white head. Nose is heavy candied sugar, strong stale grain, faint spice and some lemon and golden fruit. Taste follows suit, lots of sugar, candied sugars, lemon, light grain. High carbonation, smooth body.

On tap at Track 84 Warwick
Comes to the table a slightly hazy light golden color and a smallish off white head. Aromas of light funk, bread, bits of lemon, clove, and pepper. The flavor follows the aroma well. Light refreshing easy to drink, I enjoyed this a bit.

A: copper with a long lasting head

S: fresh, subdued natural scents

T: balanced; not sweet in any lasting sense with hints of apple and grapefruit coming through occasionally.

M: the floral notes and a restrained wheaty background don't linger around longer than they need to; sometimes reviving on the tongue for a moment, but generally making an exit before the next sip.

O: a real pleasant beer to enjoy in the waning summer months, look forward to picking some up next season.
