Keg @ Pints @ Pies, Charleston WV. Gold with a frothy white head. Baked apple, banana esters. Some banana muffins, honey. Taste is certainly a bit hit. Mellow acidity. A bit husky. More baked apple and honey. Marshmallow sweetness. Oily, full body. Actually not bad.

Draft. Pours a cloudy, murky gold with a thin white head of foam that didn’t stick around. Aroma is musty, earthy, and spicy. David said he got pear in here. I could find that once he brought it up. Taste is more of the same, but i think the spice taste just didn’t do it for me.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2014 Draft half pint at Charleston Brewing Company. Pours cloudy golden with small white head. Aroma is citrus, medium body, and medium carbonation. Taste is pear, some apple, some alcohol, and a hint of citrus. Lots of fruit flavor, but the alcohol peaks out a touch too much for me.
