Picked up in Colorado fall 2014. From notes taken at that time.

Bright orange with one finger of fluffy tan head.

Aroma consists of an array of light fruits (pear green apple, white grape) vanilla, spice cake and taffy. Complex and Inviting.

A burgeoning of more light fruits encircle a vanilla cake middle with burnt sugar, honey, spice and a pinch of hops and wood for balance.

Medium with a definite alcohol presence.

A complex and fantastic mix of ingredients that work in unison to form a top-notch brew.

Absolutely underrated.
