Hazy, deep golden color with a big and off-white foamy creamy head. Fruity aroma with notes of citrus, orange blossoms and a piney touch, accompanied by yeasty spice and hints of caramel and malt. Moderately bitter and slightly sweet flavor, medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Balanced fruity and piney hop taste with a malty base. Bittersweet and quite lasting finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a copper color with a touch of haze and a nice thick tan head. The smell is fruity, caramel, some spiciness and citrus. The taste is a nice blend of the caramel, fruit with melon, citrus and some spiciness ending dry and tickling the tongue. Thicker than I expected - medium with some oiliness and soft, elegant carbonation. It isn’t a hop forward beer but it is well balanced and elegant it the flavor blends and the palate.
