A tan thunderhead of foam rests atop this bronze ale. Smells of melon, flowers, fresh herbs; one of the most beguiling bouquets in beer. At 9% alcohol, almost wine-like. Opulent, sweet, honey-wheat flavors envelop the palate at entry, then at midpalate tastes of pears and peaches are added. Finishes sweet, ripe and fruity.
