(En ft la source): Jus dagave, mangue, chlorophylle et sapinage dans une texture modrment sirupeuse. Les sucres fruits sont nombreux et soutiennent linvasion des houblons. Trs bien ficel.

Bottle thanks to Jeremy! Pours hazy golden, medium off-white head, dissipates fairly quickly but leaves nice residual and lacing. Aroma is piney, hints of tropical dankness, forest floor, grapefruit zest. Flavor is light sweet, light plus bitter. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Pretty solid.

So, this won gold at GABF but it has only 3 ratings?! On tap at Brodys. Golden pour with a medium white head. Nose is good: citrus, tropical fruit, hops. Flavor is malty with some tropical notes, with a hoppy bitter finish. Solid, clean and refreshing, but not unique.
