Pear and green apple provides a fruity resin aroma. Malt kicks in with the taste. Golden, carbination, and fruit from the yeast give it a wine-like character. Crisp, refreshing, complex. Wife says it?s yum-yums.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Corked and caged 750 ml bottle with a warning that contents are under pressure. Heed the warning! The cork started popping out on its own as soon as I took the cage off. Pours a crystal clear gold with a gigantic fluffy white head, great retention, outstanding lace, and tons of rising bubbles. Light fruity aromas featuring lemon, pear, apple, black pepper, light malts and Belgian yeast. Pepper flavors accentuate a mostly light malt sweetness, with the aforementioned fruits adding a modest tartness. Light body, exciting effervescence, sticky mouthfeel, and a crisp finish. And extra points for the cause.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Solid pop of the cork. Deep hazy amber with rocky white head. Moderate to heavy carbonation. Soft nose of lemon citrus, biscuit, light vanilla, clove, spice, and yeast. Flavor is lightly sweet biscuit and wheat malt with gentle spice. Finishes slightly tart and acidic with lemon citrus and a light carbonic kick. Carbonation clears the delicate sweetness and leaves behing a clean dry finish. Another success in the series.
