Had this at the Holiday Ale Festival, and must say it was my favorite beer there.

- Nice darker copper color... white fluffy head....

- Smell was very floral, light sweetness.... not at all belgian-like with banana yeast etc... if so it was masked by a blanket of floral and festive goodness.

- The flavor really brought in the season... floral, bit of pine, mint, jasmine... sweet caramel malts... breadiness.... overall crisp, and refreshing, and not super dark.

- Light bodied, not too dry or bitter... just perfect carbonation.

- Super drinkable, and I would love a keg of this at home as a regular. A fantastic beer, and it really caught me off guard.
