Poured from the 12 oz bottle into a tall glass.
Appearance: The beer is a nice amber color with a 3 finger thick off white head that stays strong.
Smell: Bready backbone with fruit all over it. Almost a fruit tart but with a bit more maltiness. Not in a too much way though, just the right balance of sweet and malty.
Taste: Light but very balanced. Bready and toasty up front. The middle has just a slight sweetness to it with some brown sugar and cinnamon toast with a hint of caramelized fruit on the side. Nice toasty malt character in the finish.
One of the best widely available seasonals out there. Definitely recommended.
Serving type: bottle
