Notes: Brewed with generous amounts of Buddha’s Hand fruit and Madagascar vanilla bean, this cream ale packs a refreshing citrus flavor with a delightful vanilla undertone making this spring brew refreshingly crushable.

Pours a clear golden color which somehow becomes slightly cloudy over time. A moderately large foam head retains very well. Not a bad looking brew.
A dry Pilsner malt aroma opens things up, fairly clean and nondescript. Soon, however, the adjuncts reveal
Notes of citrus and vanilla.
A clean dry cracker and Pilsner malt taste is balanced by a modest hops bitterness in the finish. The vanilla adjuncts add a nice subdued sweetness, while the Buddha’s Hand Fruit yields notes of orange and sweet lemon.
Light drinking, although it has some some depth and body. Moderate carbonation with a refreshing and crisp mouthfeel.
I’m not an expert on the Cream Ale style but I found this to be pleasant and drinkable.

EBF Last Saturday Hazy somewhat dark golden in color with a foamy white head. Bready crackery pilsner maltiness with some vanilla and a tart fruit. kind of works.
