3.7/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: A very clean golden, creamy looking white head. Mediocre retention, not much for stickiness off the bat but it sticks on the glass as it goes

S: Soft malts, fruity esters - apple and pear. A modest pepperiness.

T + M + D: Sweet, fruity, clean. Incredibly easy to drink, a near perfect amount of carbonation. Smooth and quite a dry finish. Fairly simple and straight forward, but nicely done.

The brew pours a very clear, bright golden color with a decent creamy white head that sinks to a nice film and leaves behind some great rings on the glass. Fairly yeasty nose with a bit of fruity esters in it but somewhat bland aroma in general. Huge fruitiness in the taste with a lot of oranges, bananas, and some peaches as well. There is also a nice spiciness in the background all the way, not too much, just enough to be noticed. This brew was amazingly smooth and creamy, and awesomely drinkable. If you are ever in Charlottesville you absolutely must stop at this place, great beers and great atmosphere to boot.
