A: Poured a clear, bright, and crisp golden peach color with orange hues. A one finger cream-beige colored head sits atop that was bubbly and lasted for several minutes. Visible carbonation was faint while a nice spiderweb lacing was left behind.

S: fruity with fresh oranges and apples with a perfumy hopping.

T: a light lemon breadiness and orange flavor opens things up. There was a spiciness of apples and a pretty good floral hopping. Some alcohol detection with a slight orange sourness was also detected. The flavor was moderatly good, though maybe not so much per style. A nice malting though not a lot of spices. Some citrusy grapefruit, pale grains, with a touch of cinnamon linger about but not enough to make a difference overall.

M: light, very smooth with a extremely soft carbonation. An slightly above average xmas drink.

D: Easy to put down especially at 6.0% which drinks quite well though was only moderatly exciting.
