Pours out a crystal clear light blond color, it has plenty of carbonation and is topped off with a nice semi thick white head that slowly thins out; Very good lacing. The aroma is rather light, mild grasses and herbs come through, small amounts of lemon. The flavors are pretty complex, I can taste some apple, apricot and peaches, mild orange and some spices in the after taste. Honey, grapes, and a very slight sweet-tart flavor are also in the mix. The alcohol is well hidden and only detectable as you swallow for a brief second. This is a semi dry beer and has a light-to-medium mouth feel but is very interesting and goes down pretty smooth.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a light golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is very mild, some light notes of honey. Taste is different, alcohol is certainly present, a bit wine like with some grape flavors, a bit of honey as well. Unique to say the least. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.
