Poured into a tall pilsner glass it forms a nice white head that leaves sliding sporadic lace. Yellow body and tons of swirling rapid carbonation.

Ginger root, dirt, earthiness on the backside. This beer is all about the spices. Crisp mouthfeel. Floral is the base smell and it comes through in the mouthfeel, drying...and the taste. Fruits and spices are the dominant theme, Mango comes into play and even some vineous characteristics. Is it well put together? Yep. Is it rustic and more of a spiced and herbed tea than a good kick as beer?Yep

Notes: This was a nights worth of depth. So many spices and fruits that I'm spent and done for the evening. Not sure what could possibly follow this. I liked it and reccomend it.
