Bought a massive box of this from Costco. Seemed like a good investment. Served in a nonic.

A: Pours a bubbly copper brown color with a short off white head that lasts a short time leaving almost no lacing.

S: Smells of wheat, dark fruits, yeast, grains

T: excellent taste, light sweetness to it, dark fruits, brown sugar, yeast, wheat, grains, bit of hops, bit of malts

M: medium body with good amounts of carbonation, very light and airy, very well balanced.

O: This was damn good, I'm glad i got a 24 pack of these, should last me about a week. Quite cheap too but I bought it wholesale. I recommend this beer for sure.

Once again got a chance to return to this seasonal favorite. It poured with a 2 inch head that remained for well over 10 minutes. The lace on the side of the glass lasted the entire glass! The appearance was a beautiful dark amber. Allow this spirit to get to 50° and you'll really enjoy the malty goodness at the end. By far one of my top 20 beers and it's even better on tap if you can find it!
