Tasting notes: pours translucent golden orange with suspended lees, a wonderfully thick pillowy head, very thick and sticky lacing, some visible streams. Inviting sweet floral malts on the nose. Drinks with a mainly creamy/light fizzy mouthfeel, subdued alcohol in the background mixed with building 9/10-sweetness, main flavours of malts, caramel, hints of citrus, honey, peach, with wheat and yeast overtones, finishing smooth, light malty and off-dry. Medium complexity, med-high depth, good transitions, good carry, decent drinkability. Creeper effect as you might expect from a smooth 10.5% ABV beer.
