A: Very pale gold body, hazy, with a large fluffy white head. Some pretty good lacing...mostly broken lines and some spots.
S: I can smell some earthy and slightly spicy noble hop aromas. There is a yeasty smell to the beer...honestly smells like the bottom of a fermenter.
T: Tons of yeasty flavor...like bread dough. Some bitterness on the sides of my mouth. A bit of a vanilla flavor to it. There's a tinge of lager bite.
M: The mouthfeel is very smooth with some graininess to it. Very wet.
O: Overall I thought it was a good beer. I personally would have liked a little less yeast and a little more hop character, but otherwise it was a very good beer. It tastes very fresh and that is a good thing. I would recommend buying this in a place that has good temperature control, because that is likely to impact a beer with so much yeast in it. I would drink this again. Honestly I was thrown off by the "Alpine Spring" thing, where it brought thoughts of deodorant came to mind. I was pleasantly surprised at how good the beer is.
