Cloudy brownish orange with massive peach-white head. Aroma is strongly breadlike, with apricot, cinnamon, hay, and honey notes. Taste is very sweet. The body is heavier, but the active carbonation keeps it from having a syrupy feel. The swingtop made a rather loud "pop" each time openned.

While moving this one, the poorly constructed cap broke so I had to drink it up. Amber with a creamy tan head. Aroma of yeast, grassy and earthy hops, fruit and bready notes. Taste is sweet and earthy with juniper, fruit, alcohol and malt. Sweet to the point of cloying.
