Gold to copper in color with a light haziness. There's a fingernail of off white to tan head covering half of the top. Moderate lacing. The nose is pineapple, green apple, and pear. I'm tasting that green apple to pear and cournterbalancing that is just a touch of light crackery malt. The mouth is light, crisp, and smooth.

Poured from the tap a light hazy yellow color with two fingers of white head.

Aroma of pineapple and candy sugars.

The taste followed the aroma. Bright taste of pineapple along with a light candy sugar sweetness.

Light-to-medium bodied and crisp with a moderate carbonation.

I enjoyed this beer from the Schlafly 'Hop Trial Series'. Well done.

I had this one right after the Perle. It's interesting to note the differences, but the similarities include the golden haze and brilliant tall head. This one is more aromatic, with a pungent, earthy, musty smell. The taste is a little resiny, and it has a sharper spice note. Same body and still very flavorful.

Poured out a clear, golden-amber color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled very fruity and juicy. Tropical aromas. It taste of sweet toasted caramel with a pineapple, grapefruit and citrusy hop bite.
