Yeast driven nose with tropical fruit, spice and light biscuit and light sugar. It pours a slightly hazy gold with light copper highlights. A fruity palate with caramel apricot to pineapple and a suspicion of papaya are a perfect base for the above average carbonation and medium body as it traverses the tongue to finish with a light pepper note. There are not a lot of hops.

Pours a clear medium orange with sediment, fluffy off white head, clumpy rings down the glass. smell: fruity (apple, pear) with soft graininess, floral, buttery note. Taste: juicy nectarine, almost ripe pear, grapeskin, biscuit and honey, mildly spicy middle, then finishing dry with just slightly tart nectarine. Lots of pale malt sweetness throughout. Not the most complex, but tasty. 12/19/13 bottling noted on the back of the label.

nice fizz on pour. smell is bland, old-ish. slight acidic fruits. taste is non-existent. which is quite a feat for a 6.4% brew. slightly sour, but not much. not offensive. not exciting. slight cherry as I take a few more sips.... still fizzy like a champagne... and overall pretty neutral. which is not a bad thing. Four Loco tastes like CRAP and gives hang overs; i'm sure this is much more tolerable!
