Bottle. A strong fruity aroma, light sour hint of grapefruit, some vanilla. The white creamy head has a normal size, the body is pale yellow. The taste is quite bitter and a little bit fruity. The body is rather light, dry and creamy with a lively carbonation.

12pz bottle shared by Chalemeaux. Thanks, TJ! Pours copper with a big off white head. Aroma is orange, grapefruit, bread. Flavor is sweet. Honey, brown bread, muld grapefruit hop. I think this is probably past its prime. Should re-rate if I get a chance to try this fresh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from bottle dated 7/31/14 clear golden color with a one finger white head. Aromas of floral hops and citrus. Taste is somewhat dry with a sweet malt feel and a slightly lingering mild bitterness almost like the hops fell off due to the age. I am sure it would be better fresh.

Bottled March 18, 2015.
Glass: Duvel tulip.
Appearance: Clear golden and sparkling body, dense off-white head that has great retention.
Aroma: Mild aroma hinting at some bitterness, a bit floral with caramel notes, maybe some DMS, which would be surprising for FW.

Palate: Light to medium bodied, crisp carbonation.
Overall: Crisp pale ale, but a tad sweet and maybe some DMS. The worst beer I’ve had from FW.
