Paid $3.99 for the 25.4oz bottle...
This ale pours a cloudy yellow color with a huge white head, exceptional head retention and nice lacing effects on the glassware. The aroma is yeast and fruit driven with a touch of alochol, nice mellow and strong notes of both.
The taste is very full-body. The yeast flavor takes over and it leaves a fruity aftertaste, a bit lemony. The mouthfeel is smooth on the palette and this is highly drinkable, at 7.7%abv, it is hard to not consider this a session beer.
Final Thought: This is an excellent example of a craft beer with great creativity; it is not only a staple in its class but also an excellent buy.
