Appearance is clear copper with ruby highlights. Received a disappointing "frat pour" otherwise known as no room left for decent foam, but it looks like an off-white head and it had decent lacing throughout. Aroma is very faint, but I'm in a typical college bar so I would be surprised if I could smell anything beyond the stale beer, ashtray and urinal cake. Anyhoo, what I could detect was some sweet malt, faint fruity esters, and some flowery noble hops. Taste is bursting with some awesome toasted malt with a slightly fruity sweetness of plum, cherry, and brown sugar. Those flowery noble hops have a moderate flavor and blend nicely with the malt but leave only a slight hop bitterness on the tongue. Medium mouthfeel is very smooth and finishes dry that makes for a very refreshing tasting experience. An excellent example of an amber style bier de garde and absolutely wonderful on tap.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
