3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at BR. Clear orange pour with a persistent short white head leaving moderate lace. Nose is balanced with some pine and sweet malt. Medium-heavy body with moderate, fine carbonation. Pine, ganja and plenty of caramel malt to balance. Some spiciness akin to the GF Palate Wrecker. Finish is more of the same, with some cantaloupe and strawberries. My first ale from Phair, will be looking for more.
