Pours a half finger of head on a clear light straw body. Lots of bubbles.
The aroma is a nice pear, apple and spice smell.
The taste is fruity sweet but balanced with a dry tenancy towards the finish.
The texture is medium and fizzy.
It's enjoyable.

Pours a clear bright amber orange with a lovely, thick and firm white head, that unfortunately fades a bit quickly.

Nose is full assertive esters of banana and cooked stone fruit.

Mouthfeel is very creamy and rich with very light carbonation. In fact, feels almost like a "beer cream."

Flavor profile is bold and assertive rich biscuit and cracker yeast; undertones of fresh white bread but with a rich almost sweet rice undertone. Beer is actually luscious in the mouth with a rich elegance to the flavors. Hints of spice, whiskey and heavily creamed rich honey come to mind.

Finish is cooked honey and fruit with a hint of dry bitterness. This one is really quite complex and very nice all around. The bottle speaks of the beer "blurring the line between beer and wine." Actually a pretty good description.
