From a 22 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with hamilton23. Poured a light orange-yellow with small one-finger head which quickly disappeared. Little lacing observed. Nose was orange, lemon and some spice (coriander and nuttiness) and some belgian-like yeast. Taste was very sweet, with oranges and honey in the forefront. There is some hint of spice in the back but this beer stays on the same theme throughout — sweet. Since I love the hoppy offerings of this brewer, I was disappointed to find not much here. I felt like it should be syrupy, but actually it has a pretty light mouthfeel. It has very little carbonation (and seems to beg for more). Alpine has so many good beers but sadly this isn't one of them. I wouldn't go out of my way for another of these.

This beer was poured into a standard pint glass from a 22 recently purchased from Alpine. I am confident this brew is fairly fresh.
A - The head appears standard white, with medium bubble density and thickness. The body is clear and golden in color. The appearance is nice and clean.
S - The smell is light, citrusy, and sweet.
T - The taste is also light, citrusy, and bright. There is sweetness throughout and tanginess at the backend.
M - The mouthfeel is easy, airy, and clean.
O - This is a nice summer beer for those hot, sunny days, when you need something that will not hold you down. This beer is nicely spiced and easy to drink. My wife and her girlfriend really enjoyed this brew during the afternoon. Simple drinking here...
