Bubbles: very fine bubbles. Long head. white
Clarity: slightly smoky (normal considering live yeast and being unfiltered), very clean
Color: orange
Aroma: dry and fruity.Bread, biscuits, oranges.
Taste: dry and fruity attack.
Complex: bread, biscuits, oranges.
Lingers long enough for true tasting before departing on a soft and dry note with oranges, apricots and hints of lemon.
Very pleasant on the palate.
Soft oranges and biscuits tend to come back with every sip.

Overall Elegant and deep lager for all seasons.
Both complex and gentle on the palate, a craft beer best appreciated slightly chilled at first and slowly drunk as its temperatures slowly to reveal more facets.
