Ripe pear, raw honey and peppery phenols rise into the nostrils. Spicy sweet estery alcohol intoxicates the nose. Smooth and creamy with a fluffy crispness upfront. Delicate and supple medium body curls around the tongue with a medium to high carbonation. Esters are solid but not flamboyant. Sweetness pushes forth with ripe fruit and pale honey. Fruitiness is light yet expressive with hints of pear and tangerine. Hop bitterness cuts through a bit and a bite from the yeast tries to keep things in balance also. Slight phenolic peppery flavour adds an enjoyable contrast to the sweetness. Phenolic flavours stay with the finish so the sweetness does not appear to dominant. Incredibly easy to drink and dangerous at that being a triple. Very well balanced with a clean palate even with the esters and phenols running around the taste buds.
