look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

a: nice swing top bottle that pours a hazy gold/straw with a cray thick white head that looks like meringue and has amazing staying power

s: spicy, sweet, coriander, rounded citrus,

t: sweet, mild hay, rock sugar, spicey, a bit of abv, and a mild bitter hop finnish, a little grapiness

m: the creamy foam adds a nice element to the mouthfeel; medium body, slightly syrupy, it is lightly carbed which i think accentuates the mild syrupiness - it could use more carbonation imo

d: a decent beer (although it is a little overpriced), could use a little less sweetness i think and some more complex balance - good though, but an also ran for beers in the style.

look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

The beer was poured from the bottle into a glass. Lots of carbonation visible. The beer looks okay, like a bit yellow-orange. The smell is awesome, very rich, with lots of hints of spices. The taste was a bit disappointing, not very rich and a bit too bitter for my taste. The mouthfeel was good, when the beer warms up a bit, if you don't swallow too quickly, the taste becomes more complex. Overall, not a bad beer.
