Appearance – Yellowy gold sort of colour, fine carbon streams. Supports a creamy white head that lasts pretty well.
Smell – Smells of yeast and malts with typical fruit aromas. Light clove and banana but not as strong as some in this style, personally I like that.
Taste – Good sweet sour balance with nice apple peach and banana with spicy pepper and clove taste.
Mouthfeel – Very dry finish but very full bodied with nice carbon tingle.
Overall – Very soft on the pallet this beer smells like an Amstel but drinks like a mild Leffe. Sweet but not overly so this beer tastes great and is good for a session. So mild and pleasant I think anybody could drain a keg without complaint.
