(Bottle) Pours clear dark golden to amber with an off-white head. The aroma holds grain, ginger, cider and mint/pear bubblegum up front with undertones of fruit jam, sugar, bready yeast, lemon soap, light tropical fruits and light phenolic spices (white pepper). The flavor is light to medium sweet, light bitter and tiny acidic. Spicy, fruity, light hoppy and clean malty. The mouthfeel is round and soft with a medium to full carbonation. Spicy, syrupy and light herbal hoppy finish. Medium bodied.
