Pours a clear deep golden color with a huge white head that persists forever. Smells of sweet light juicy fruits, honey and sugar with a solid shot of pepper and spice. Sweet honey and sugary malts play well with apricots and and other light fruits. The malty sweetness is countered quite well by the peppery spicy yeast phenols. Medium body with a spirited level of carbonation and a sweet fizzy mouthfeel. Nice brew and thanks again to Dave M for sharing.
