Pours amber with a fading head.
Nose shows cinnamon, cloves, candied orange, soft wheat. Very strong spices.
Loads more spices as flavours, close to overpowering. Some soft malt in there.

Pours a cloudy golden colour with a white head that dissipates quickly

Smells of clove.....bready odours......orange.....

Strong....bitterness.....spiciness.....yeast flavours. Not getting the orangey flavours on the tongue. Slight alcohol burn near the end of the mouthful.

Mouthfeel is thicker but It is a higher abv.

Overall a delicious beer. I would buy this again in a heartbeat.

Smell of yeasts and spices.
In mouth, cloves take a lot of place but cinnamon brings a sweet taste.
I'm impressed

hazed bright orange colour, ring of white head with not much lace here. Nose is spicy, lots of clove, orange and lightly tart yeast, fruity. Taste is spicy and yeasty cinnamon and cloves, what I would describe as winterspice, a bit yeasty, everything in good balance, quite tasty. Medium carbonation, medium body. Nice stuff here, not my favorite style but this one I like, ABV well hidden, quite drinkable.

Appearance: It has a nice hazy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves little lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of cloves, cinnamon, wheat malts, pepper, orange zest and Belgian yeast.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some definite cloves and cinnamon, an earthy bitterness, some wheat, faint pepper, lemon/orange zest and light Belgian yeast.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.

341mL (11.5oz) bottle from La Duchesse D'Aiguillon (Quebec City). 2.39. The double 10 digit notching makes it impossible to decipher bottling date unless you know who to ask but this is marked 0&3. Served in a Terrapin snifter.

Pours hazy pale yellow with less than an eighth finger of pale head that quickly fades and doesn't leave any lace behind.

Smells of cloves, yeast and mild cinnamon.

Big clove flavor with the cinnamon much further in the background. The mildly tart yeast is up front with the cloves. Other tastes drift in and out including orange peel, bananna, sweet wheat, honey/sugar, earthy and floral notes. A little bit of alcohol presence but it's kept well in check by the crazy array of flavors.

Medium sticky body with a good bit of sharp carbonation. Dry finish with lingering cloves, yeast and citrus peel.

A very different wit than the few I've tried before. Much more intense and interesting. Perhaps a little too much clove, seeing as it dominated from start to finish. Still worth a try.
