Poured a hazy yellow with a huge billowy head. Smell is spicy, a little bit of funky yeast, some floral notes. Taste is really fruity up front, with both citrus and peach notes. I get a little bit of coriander and another spice I can't quite get a handle on, but it's exactly what is right! Mouthfeel is luxurious, velvety smooth, with just a touch of prickly carbonation that makes it perfect. This is an awesome beer in all respects! I just love it!

Giant white head, clear yellow, pale color.

Aromas of warm, crisp yeast, going along with hints of fresh hops and spices.

Medium-bodied, defined by yeast, fresh supporting carbonation, and perfect fitting spiciness of cloves, a little pepperiness with citrus peel. Still, this beer is surprisingly refreshing without loosing its decent complexity. Yeast becomes even fluffier, softer as the beer warms up, spices get a little sharper, creating an even more complex body. Spiciness varies between, sweet, sharp, bitter - in that order, leaving a warm feeling in the stomach. Aftertaste is still very smooth, toffeeish, sweet malts, and still spices.
