Enjoyed on tap as part of a sampler at Moon River in Savannah, GA. Appearance is a slightly clear gold, thin white head. Aroma of belgian candi sugar, honey, sweetness. Taste is pretty good, has a light burn from the alcohol, definitely sweet, honey notes, pretty smooth, goes down very easily.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub in Savannah poured into an eight ounce wine glass (which honestly was just enough). Medium gold pour, bubbly white head. Boozy, cheap lager aroma with some wet paper bag accents. Sweet, almost cloying flavor which reminds me of one of those "high gravity" lagers sold in big cans. Some candi sugar sweetness mellows it out some, but the alcohol burn is very evident. Not a fan - not one of Moon River’s finest moments.

Pours a clear golden color with minimal head. Flavor is sweet from the dixie crystal but not overdone. Not for everybody but definately worth trying.

At the brewpub in Savannah. Sweet from the dixie sugar, in the style of a Belgian with candi. Despite its extreme sweetness, it was darn drinkable, and there is graininess from yeast and wheat. I liked it, and damn good on a winter Georgia night that would be spring back home.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Crystal clear gold, but a little pale for the style. Nice, bone white head tops it. Very fruity, yeasty aroma like spiced peaches. Apricot fruitiness overwhelms the pale malt, but there’s just enough bitterness to balance. Dangerously drinkable.

crystal clear gold, creamy white head, streaks of drippy lace,
sweet sugar aroma with a light fruity character,
sweet and fruity flavor, a very different and unusual sweetness with a very sticky candy character, even the fruity character is different from the usual estery fruit and more like a peach or apricot, light spicyness, alcohol shows as a warming character to the sweet fruit,
