Astonishing. Incredibly gorgeous to look at, with a wonderful solid-gold medium body and rich-looking cream-colored head. The aroma is incredible, I can't begin to describe it, full of malt and acidic fruit flavors; and the flavor is almost too much on top of that. Perhaps too quick a finish, but a world-class beer from a world-class brewery nonetheless.

Serving type: bottle

A- Bought a 16oz. growler pour of this and it was extremely foamy at the tap but not at all a couple of hours later at home when poured into an IPA glass. What little head there was quickly disappeared and left a crystal clear golden ale with no visible effervescence behind.

S- Definitely sweet fruit present on the nose, not an overly powerful smell but it's there.

T- Once I settled into the idea that this isn't a style that I have much (barely any) experience with, I could begin to enjoy it for what it is. It's a complex on the palate ale that is well balanced, crisp in its own way, and easy to drink.

M- I would call this smooth with just enough acidity and life to create some interest.

O- I was happy to stretch my palate from my recent run of IPA, DIPA, and imperial stout. I would like to try this in a bottle to see if my pour took some of the life out of it, although most reviewers seem to mention a rapidly disappearing head. When your mind puts it into the context of a "spring" ale, you could see it as a nice awakening from a winter filled with darker and stronger beer and a nice complement to the fresh dishes of the spring season.
