Sampling right now on 2/25/15. Seen this in their Winter (?) Sampler before. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a vintage Sam Adam's pint glass.

Brew pours a golden-honey in color with a small white foamy head. A decent amount of lacing is seen when sipped that slides back down the glass. The aroma is of Belgian yeast along with some light fruit, maybe pears. The taste pretty much follows the nose with some light foral hops in the mix also. Very smooth and goes down easy. No harsh or bitter aftertaste at all. Lighter bodied with medium carbonation. Overall a tasty brew.

one of the first beers that got me to really enjoy beer. I moved on to other beer but I will always think fondly of this beer even though I've realized it's a little too watery for my current tastes.

Ok for what it is. Certainly a watery forgettable beer. Nice to find at a value, which I did as part of a 'Sumner Variety' pack for near $1 a beer. Has an ok spice presence. Probably a nice 'gateway' beer for beginners~
