The bouquet is beautiful, with fruity and esthery aromas of rich dried apricot and orange blossom oil. Though by appearance the carbonation seems low, the mouth is fluffy and tangy while remaining intense, with strong hop flavors of tangerine rind and abundant stone fruit. It's sweet up front with a significantly bitter finish, and although it's strong the alcohol is hidden and overall the beer is balanced.
