Pours a golden raisin dirty blonde leaving a thin white lacy frothy head that disappears quickly. The aroma is sweet raisins, plums, figs, honey, pitted fruit abound, a fantastic nose. The taste starts a bit boozy, but nothing crazy. The mouth feel is light, sweet, crisp, and delicious. The finish is slightly hoppy with a sweet fruit ripened ending this beer is great. Hopefully this doesn't go away.
