3.96/5 rDev +6.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Serving: 16oz can into footed pilsener
Served: 15 June 2013
Appearance: A hazy light yellow. Color wise, it almost looks like an unfiltered pilsener. When pouring, you get a nice pure-white two finger head that rather rapidly dissipates. Mega-carbonation visible as the bubbles stream up from the bottom of the glass. You can see particulate suspended in the beer, but it doesn't look like yeast. Maybe this particulate is the 'spice' that the can claims is inside.
Smell: An outstanding spiced, citrusy smell. Smells fresh and clean. Very inviting and curious smelling. Smells like it will be a sweet tasting beer.
Taste: Basically the same as the smell- spiced and citrusy. Some of the banana and clove tastes evident of wheat beer styles, but nothing too overpowering on either end of the spectrum. This beer tastes better as the initial carbonation starts to diminish after being set out for a while.
Mouthfeel: Heavily carbonated, with bubbles that feel large on the tongue. This counterbalances the full bodied feel from the suspended matter floating around in the beer. I think I would want to have just slightly less carbonation to emphasize the unfiltrated nature rather than seem to diminish its effects. As I kept drinking this and the carbonation started to come out of the beer, it started tasting more how I wanted it to. Overall, this is a good beer and above average, but certainly less than anything astoundingly notable.
