This one pours with a light and slightly hazy copper hue, with a small head, and not much lacing.

This smells like lemon, bourbon sweetness, oak, honey, stone fruit, vanilla, and pineapple.

This is super unique- the bourbon and honey add a really nice sweet to the funk and citrusy base beer. You would have no idea that this is nearly 9%, as there is no booziness. There's some oak and vanilla, with orange and stone fruit on the palate as well.

This is medium bodied, slightly creamy, with a very high level of drinkability.

I always remark on how I should drink more Plan Bee whenever a friend brings a bottle over. This was a really fun beer.

I'm a very big fan of this small brewery. Difficult to get for those of us in Los Angeles but worth the effort. This one is particularly good and a fine example of Plan Bee perhaps at its best. Cloudy but not offensive and with a wonderful sweet, honey, fruity nose. Medium bodied and nice with perfect carbonation. Flavors are comlex with assertive flash of sweet honey on the front palate that goes to complex wood, spice and fruit with a clean finish. One of the best from PB.

A: Deep golden almost copper color. White fluffy head, sticks around for a bit. S: Honey all over the nose, little graham cracker. Some mango and pineapple. A little tartness and that musty cellar funk that is in all PB beers. T: Woah, honey and lots of it. Some fruity flavors, reminiscent of a Biere de Garde. Nice bright tartness, but light on the acidity. Oak dryness to finish it off. F: Mid full, fluffy, pillowy mouthfeel. Just solid all around feel. O: Well here it is, the best PB beer I've had and I've enjoyed all thus far, but damn this is great. This beer is on par with Hill all day.
