Poured into short tumbler glasses at 50-55 degrees, and consumed over 20 marvelous minutes.

The color is of a flat, misty amber-tan with a weighty cream head that’s durable.
It has a clean, balanced nose full of the usual suspects in proper measure—spruce, grapefruit, tin, acorn, and a nice dose of gingery soil.
There's an oily-thick glyceryl body. Displays layers of taste and movement in the mouth. Jumps in with bubbly spice. Bitters charge through the center as the legs dangle off sides of the tongue. Then one grinds a mouth of edible flowers that wilt slowly into a bready resin.
Over the course of tasting, more clove is evident as it warms toward wine.
This brew glows in the gut as it does in the glass. Go get it!
