You get just past a finger of bone white foam, not very dense but does manage to hold on for a good long time all the way across the surface, the lacing has minor stickiness and slides slowly down the glass in sheets. Cloudy golden colored liquid, very full in the glass and bright, only randomly scattered large bubbles for any visual sign of carbonation, no noticeable particulate, just gauziness. The nose is soft and enveloping with flowers, chamomile, clove spice, white grapefruit pulp, mild stiffening via pepper and salt notes, more well cooked bread crust than grassiness, gentle notes of banana, apricot and peach, overall subdued but not because it has nothing to say. In the mouth it’s full-bodied, again quite soft, and creates a pressure out towards the cheeks. On the sweet side and the carbonation not really active enough to stem this. Not that it needs stemming, has sufficient spiciness and more hops and earth presence here. Less of the esters and leesy stuff, sweetness seems to come a lot from grains than malts, not getting any cocoa, vanilla type stuff. Same basic apricot, peach, golden apple, pear fruit, loses most of the banana. Pleasing, perhaps more of a cooler weather beer, appears made more in European than American style. Nothing dramatic about it but solid. [Note: Per correspondence with brewery, they classified this as an American Pale Ale.]
