Pours a hazed brown. Topped by a fluffy, beige head that fades to a film. The aroma is toasted malts, caramel, chocolate, fruit, and a hint of smoke.

A toastiness upfront quickly moves into a nice caramel sweetness. The caramel yields to some light fruitiness in the center. The finish has notes of chocolate, smoke, spicy alcohol and a light bitterness. Medium-bodied, highly carbonated and thick.

Strong and flavorful, but balanced.

Lightly sweet with banana and citrus flavors and pleasing tartness in the finish. Light-bodied and crisp with a light dryness in the finish.

Flavorful, refreshing and pleasingly tart.
