Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Colour and sight: pale blond, the fine and regular effervesce ensures a fine and stable head.
Scent: Slightly malty, a nice touch of alcohol, spicy.
Flavour: Feels like the sound shot of alcohol is igniting the mouth. In reality the tongue and palate are warmed. The taste is characterized by its roundness. The aftertaste is strong, long-lasting and dry bitter.

A - pours a clear deep golden color verging on amber. Thick fluffy white foam sits on top. Good retention. Spotty lacing.

S - surprisingly dark aroma for such a light colored beer. Dark fruits like raisins, plums and dates come to mind. Bready yeast. Hints of chocolate, grandulated sugar and peppery spice round out the nose.

T - doughy bread up front along with a vauge note of the crust from a slice of whole wheat. Touch of earthy hop bitterness I'm the center to balance the sweetness and the citrus fruit esters. Lively pepper notes (alcohol?) on the backend which last fairly long after the finish.

M - creamy texture. medium bodied flirting with full. Fluffy carbonation on the high side.

O - awesome. An incredibly unique ale not only worth tasting but having a steady supply.
