Pours a thin head on a clear light straw colored body.
The aroma is bright fruit, grain, pine and lemon. Great.
The taste is interesting. Lemon bitterness, a weird blend with the sweet and soap. Not great.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
The taste is not good.

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass.

A - Hazy light yellow with a perfectly even, one-finger, snow white head which dissipated quickly. Barest hints of lacing.

S - Strong aroma of cloves, Belgian yeast, lemon, and apricot.

T - Clove overload. Also flavors of Belgian yeast funk, lemon rind, white pepper, banana, coriander, and bubblegum. Some fruity and floral hop in the finish. There's some good things lurking underneath, but clove overpowers everything.

M - Lighter side of medium bodied, with medium carbonation. Crisp finish.

O - As mentioned above, the overpowering clove makes this hard to rate as anything above "average". A misfire.

Bottle from the mix pack purchased at Tipples. Pours hazy but almost clear, light yellow, with a bright white head on top the recedes quickly. Aroma of banana esters, dried grass, barnyard funk, sharp dryness, sweet pears and apples. Very nice. Flavor is funky dry grassiness, some lightly sweet fruit, lingering grassy hop character on the palate. Dry, light bodied, and high carbonation. Not bad, pretty crisp, and easy drinking.

Glowing Blonde color with a thin fizzy head. The nose holds a peppery, clovey, doughy aroma with some grassiness and apple sweetness. This has a brash clove flavor which is not suited to my taste. There is a bit of apple and pear in the mid palate. Black licorice or anise with a perfumey floral hop finish makes this my least favorite of the 12.
