I found this brew to be a bit of a paradox.Good looking reddish ale cplor with a short-lived tan head. /a fruity sweet smell that is addictive, a sweet taste that is a sugary treat but wearisome after awhile. A tingly sweet mouthfeel that is like no biere de garde I have ever had all in all a study in contrasts. Perhaps les true to the style but enjoyable nver the less.
As I said above it ours a reddish amber with a tan head that left lots of delicate lacing.
Aroma was malty with little hop scent discernible.
Taste was fruity sweet. Yeasty, some apples some caramel, some burnt sugary noes, faint grassy hops that appear in the wake of all else. Complex and challenging...curiously addictive.
Mouthfeel is light and pleasant. Strongly effervescent at first later somewhat muted, The fizzineess makes a nice counterpoint to a complex if somewhat sweet beer.
drinkable yes but one and done is the watchword here. This is a nice brew to finish the night or a nice counterpoint to something really salty.... or a nice piece of good chocolate...
I liked this beer although it was a too sweet for my usual tastes...

3.75/5 rDev -1.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Sam Adams perfect pint. Best by 9/25/14 (about 2 months from today's date).
A: Translucent medium amber body, tight cream colored head. Fades quickly to a lacey top.
S: Big tropical fruitiness and interesting hops. Certain sweetness and caramel aroma.
T: Balance of caramel malt and light yeast flavors. There is an assertive bitterness, but it Somehow finishes very clean and refreshing.
M: Surprisingly dry and clean on the finish. This is not a heavy beer on the palate.
O: Some big flavor but easy to drink. I'm not hugely into this mashup of hoppy/amber/farmhouse. Luckily they don't take either of those elements too far and end up with something pretty good.
