Fairly aggressive pour barely gets you a finger of bleached white foam, this rapidly dissipates to a thin, spotty dusting across the surface, the lacing has some moderate stickiness, forms thicker streaks which themselves then slide down the glass. The liquid is a washed out zinc orange color, transparent with a slight gauziness, good amount of bubbles visible, fat and very active. The nose has an unassuming richness to it, quite fruity with apricot, peach, pear, banana scents accompanied by cinnamon, nutmeg spice and vanilla bean, gains some shape via lemon zest, metallic earth and pepper accents, even a little herbal grassiness, good staying power as well. Medium-bodied, strong carbonation gets it churning right off the bat, almost hyperactive. Still, plays up that sweetness in the apricot, peach, yellow apple, cherry fruit, not as much banana. Floral more than spicy here, the earthiness more evident when first pouted and well chilled. The lemon citrus component helps it keep freshness when it otherwise seems to get lazy and sluggish. And that carbonation certainly extends the finish, without undue sweet residue. Simple as in not overtly complicated, not a bad thing. Made for a sunny day and a hearty lunch. And then a nap. [Note: Per correspondence with brewery, they classified this as an American Blonde Ale.]
