750ml dark green bottle brewed by the Women of Beer collective on site at Matilda Bay. A collaboration between the women of Matilda Bay, CUB, Old Salt, Red Hill, Two Birds, Hargreaves Hill, Beer Girl Bites and the Beer Diva. Proceeds support the Australian Pink Boots Society. This bottle was purchased from Slowbeer in Melbourne.

Pours a pleasantly bright and relatively clear deep golden colour, with a fine persistent bead of carbonation through the body. Body is light, but silky. Head forms a pleasantly fine, slightly filmy crest of white. Some thin, streaking lace. Looks pretty good.

Nose is mild, but sweet with spices, with hints of rounded anise and a hint of woody cinnamon quills. Light oaky notes come through, almost lending a peppery tone when in conjunction with the spices. Indeed, the more I smell, the more it seems peppery and woody, almost dusky. It's very pleasant.

Taste is similar—pleasant clean spice characters, with a hint of peppery brusqueness on the back. There's a touch of acidity to it, just a faint brushing, perhaps, that descends more to the darker tones of spice and leather on the finish. Some volatile aromas of vanilla and a touch of fruitskin come through as well—it's quite pleasantly done.

Feel is smooth and light, with minimal carbonation.

Overall, very drinkable and really very enjoyable. Pleasantly bold and spicy, but tamed and structured to be easy to drink. I think the better of the beers from the Collective so far—here's hoping there's more to come.
