This was given to me by a friend who had purchased a growler at the Beer Run in Charlottesville. Nice aroma, small head and poured a cloudy gold color. Ther is much to like. The higher alcohol is well disguised. Sweet to taste like the fruit apples or appricots. This was a limited production. Blue Mountain was sold out and Beer Run had the last for this production.
