Victory St. Boisterous

St. Boisterous poured a clear, golden yellow color with a finger width, white head.  The aroma is pleasant, yeasty with a nice underlying malt.  The body is smooth, a hint of sweetness up front and some light fruit on top of a malt base and some very nice hop characteristics on the backend.  The finish is shorter with a light dryness that compliments the body very well. 

Overall, a wonderful example of this beer style.  It is a little bit lighter than some beers in this style, but I love it.  It is balanced, complex and has very nice depth while still retaining a softness on the palate that makes it entirely too easy to slug down.
