The artwork on New England cans is setting a new standard....I love the Neighbor with his wife beater tee,farmer tan and the Register under his arm....the subtle,resigned look on his face. Hilarious !

OK, so about the contents :Looks great in a tulip. Slightly hazy , bright gold with a nice billowy head that laces a bit as it drops.
Smells like pome fruits and yeast.
Flavor in layers: banana, yeast, pears, apples, various spices and a really great earthy, grassy, dry turn toward the end which makes me think " super saison". Very, very good, very Belgian and scarey drinkable ! No way you would think 9% abv unless told....even then you might doubt.
This is so good, I'm starting to believe that NEBCO may have pulled some type of Faustian deal for the recipe...? Definitely worth a soul or two.

Serving type: can
