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.

750 ml brown bottle obtained at Hannaford's Supermarket. Hazy golden color with an inch of off white head that holds very well with a bit of lacing on the glass. smells spicy and orange peel. The spiciness, orange peel, and the pithy quality is very prominent. Light/moderate mouth feel. very drinkable goes down smoothly. very well made beer.
