3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
In the 750 mL flipcap bottle from Beertopia. Pours dark gold with a thick frothy white dense head. Has a yeasty ozone-like aroma! Extremely sweet like nectar water spiked with sugar and honey. This finishes surprisingly tart for such a sweet beer. Medium thick body with a very rich mouth feel for such a light-looking beer. Very palatable, but has some lingering alcohol heat in the back of the mouth.

Not too off the mark for a BdG. Ends with more honey and sweet malts, light fruit notes, soft spice and floral hops. This was rather tasty and I nice gift from my friend Alan during his trip to NoVA.
