Pours clear and amber red with a moderate tan head.

Biscuity, bready nose. Caramel there, too.

Sweet and biscuity up front, levels to a moderately bitter, huge biscuit flavor midtongue. This beer is all biscuit.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, this is very sessionable.

I recently enjoyed this on draft at my local Lucky's Market store. That was a pleasure to enjoy the french style Country Ale. Ales are always a full deep flavor.
A: Clear deep beautiful Amber color.
B: Smell of nice roasted grain, slightly peppery and flowery like honeysuckle.
C: Taste is so nice as you get a mouth full of many flavors like cracked grain, malt, rich hops and all very well balanced.
D: Mouthfeel was great as the carbonation was just right too. Not too much and not too liittle.
E: Over all this was one of my favorites at this place so far and I do hope they get some back again as Ii will bring my new "Drink Tank" growler to fill :) I like the Country Ale taste, a little sour and really rustic style taste.

Had on tap at Isaac's in Newtown.

A - An opaque, ruby burnt orange. Steady lacing throughout.

S - sweet, malty, with hints of sugar cane. flemish yeast.

T - Sweet up front but smoothes out to a yeasty almost tart/tang. Reminds me of Duchesse de Bourgone, belgian sour ale, without the sour part.

M - Pleasantly medium with a dry finish.

I was pleasantly surprised by this beer as I had no idea what to expect. Unique and had me coming back for more. I'm going to look for this at my local store. Try one.

On draft. compliments brisket. No dry after taste enjoyable. Slight nutty, light bitter taste.

Wasn't expecting this to be half as delicious as it was. Fruity, crisp and delicious sweet aftertaste - very reminiscent of a wine, actually. I'm not a big wine drinker, so this was like wine improved for me! "Great burp" like someone else said, haha! I'm normally in pursuit of syrupy coffee, chocolatey stouts yet this ale packed a great punch AND was easy to finish with a (bbq) meal. Looking forward to trying this out of the bottle.

Poured from a 12 fluid ounce bottle into an over-sized wine glass. Best by date of 05/17/14 printed on label.

Appearance: Glowing, clear amber body capped off with a nice off-white head. Good amount of lacing throughout.

Smell: Sweet caramel. Notes of apples and pears also come through. Minor floral notes are present as well.

Taste: Strong grainy taste up front. Somewhat sweet notes of fruit run alongside a strong presence of bread. The hops kick in and balance this out nicely.

Mouthfeel: Very smooth. Medium body. Very well balanced. Dry finish.

Overall: Great beer. I have not had many beers of this style so it is difficult to compare it to others, but it did not disappoint me. Recommended!
