I donated a corny of this to my LHBS to pour at a beer and spirits festival in Lake Geneva last weekend. Out of all the kegs at the event, I was told this one kicked first. A little too fruity for my tastes, but I really haven't had anything else in this style to compare it to.
Aurë Entuluva! Day shall come again!
Sheldon: If its a brew day, its a good day
raptorvan: it makes the beer so silky smooth its like drinking a glass of giggling angels.
