Pours a light amber hue with golden edges, fluffy white head, decent retention with some lacing. Aroma is sweet German malt, light orange zest and spice. Flavor follows the nose - real nice malt bill, the orange zest and coriander are subtle and the honey is nice, finishes with light hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium bodied, light carbonation and a dry finish. Very drinkable - especially in the warm summer months in California, or great for an anytime session beer.

my first alpine beer! it kind of sucks...
like the other guy said- apricot color, not carbonated much, no head.
smells like a crappy brew.
sorry, I might just be in a piss-y mood, but this is rather bland with a funky aftertaste. why go into details? kind of novelty tasting.... harsh. very difficult to finish the entire bottle. 5 oz flight taster, sure; but never a 22oz bottle.... sorry guys... still cant wait to make the drive down to taste your good stuff...
