from a bottle drank out of a wineglass

A-looks like a orange soda with a nice 2 finger head realy nice looking beer

S- clove citrus tangy floral smell

T-kinda fruity get a lot of clove spicyness not bitter at all realy smooth for a 7%abv

M-realy crisp dry feal lots of carbonation

Overall- this was a damn good beer picked it up out of town because I never seen this brew before and I was very impressed such an easy beer to put back kinda scary because I feel like I can drink theese all day and at 7%abv I would b smashed lol
