3.7/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Bottle 780 of 950. Poured into a snifter, the beer is a vibrant, slightly hazed, deep caramel-copper coloring with a thin, sparse layer of surface film and a very rapid, steady flow of carbonation bubbling. Lots of pressure when the cork was popped, also. Aromas of evergreen, mint, rose, and hyacinth. More layers on the nose as you drink, but I'm not that well versed in the world of flower and fauna. Very floral is the only way to sum it all up. Flavors are well blended, but almost muting of each other. There is a deep honey sweet backbone, with some peppery and oregano notes, and highlights of rose, jasmine, and lavender. Drinking this reminds me of all of the characteristics you are inundated with when you step into a greenhouse at a flower shop. It's a very layered blast to your taste and smell, and it works. There are some funky notes throughout, reminiscent of a Belgian yeast strain, with cherry and fig sweetness sprinkled throughout, as well. Very bold flavors on a body that starts sharp on the tongue, but smooths out across the palate. Peppery and roasty aftertaste, with a blast of chai at the very end. A fairly quick, clean finish. Very interesting beer. Tasty and unique.

Both the smell and taste start with familiar clove and spice flavors but then you get the floral notes to follow. The Belgian yeast spice flavor is nicely balanced with the edible flowers. It is almost like the floral flavors chance the belgian spice and give you just as much as you want without overloading.

A tremendous brew in my opinion and something I hope they do again next year.
