L: gets off to a very nice start as it pours an amber color with a creamy off-white thick head. Head has very nice staying power.

S: aroma of hops, grapefruit, caramel.

T: Caramel malts, light citrus, banana bread in the background...which wasn't particular pleasant.

F: mouthfeel is medium bodied and lightly cleansing.

O: Overall, it is a decent brew that is sessionable.

Pours a hazy amber producing a huge, foamy, lasting, off-white head that leaves moderate streaks & webs of lace. Aroma is acidic, with bready & caramel malt notes, hints of banana, spice, lemon & grass. Taste is also acidic, caramel, toast, very subtle banana & dried apple flavors, pepper & a light bitter hop character from mid-sip that dwindles rapidly in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium to slightly heavy carbonation, lively in the mouth & full of prickles becoming heavy bodied & full on the tongue in the finish. This is weird but the mouthfeel is somewhat Saison like!

Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a dark, amber-brown coloring with a foamy, dense, clingy, off-white head. Nose of sweet nut, roasted notes, and hints of caramel. Sweet malty forward, with caramel and toffee notes throughout. Roasty and sweet, on a smooth, light body. Sweet, roasted in the aftertaste, as well, with a smooth, slightly lingering finish. Well put together, balanced, and tasty.
