On-tap at the brewpub.

Pours a hazy golden-amber color with a one-finger off-white head. The head recedes into a thin layer on top leaving solid lacing.

Smells of bright sweet malts with large amounts of candi sugar along with pears, apricots, and lightly herbal hops.

Tastes very good. Sweet medium malt flavors kick things off and are joined almost immediately by good amounts of sugar-coated pear and syrupy apricot flavors. Midway through the sip the sweetness fades a bit as light herbal and leafy hop flavors work their way into things, carrying through to a sweet ending.

Mouthfeel is very good. It's got a nice thickness with grainy carbonation.

Drinkability is also very good. I finished my glass quickly and could easily have a few more.

Overall I was very impressed with this beer - the sweetness is large but doesn't quite pass the point of no return and the fruit flavors all play off of each other very well. Definitely worth a shot.

Comes out of the tap a hazy, nearly opaque golden amber. Aroma is yeasty and fruity, the latter being mainly apples. Flavor is crisp, malty, fruity, and just a little bit sweet with a hint of butterscotch. Texture is smooth, fizzy and gently tingly. Another winner from the Five.
