First off, Its my opinion that this is a really odd time to release this beer, it reminds me of spring. It is a real change of pace from the porters and stouts I've been downing, but it isnt necessarily a good thing.
Fresh indeed, it pours almost phosphorescent yellow with a flat head that settles into a short lived lace ring.
Aromas are of bright hops and sweet fruit, I pick up pears, apricots and peaches. Its very reminiscent of a Reisling or Chardonnay wine to me.
Taste is very similar, its sharp and bright at first, then mellows into the fruity esters and finishes clean with apricot and pear most prevalent.
Its very drinkable, and I would enjoy having a couple of these shaping up the yard when the weather starts turning warmer again. I'll save my winter for the darker brews and Holiday seasonals to come though!
