Nice big white head. Color is quite clear light straw. Nice visible carbonation going on.

Smell: yeast, cloves, banana, freshly baked bread. Some earthiness.

Taste: a nice mix of spices and malt up front. Then some yeast, citrus and a light bitterness. More spices, but very complex, not just cloves. Light alcohol taste. Aftertase is a bit bitter (lemonpeel) and a bit earthy.

Mouth: this is quite big, full and clings to the mouth in a good way. Nice medium carbonation. Really good.

Overall this is really good. Much more complex than most in the style. I like it quite cold though, too warm and it gets a bit heavy.

11.2oz bottle, reviewed from notes on 9/27/2012.

Hazy golden amber topped with a perfect fluffy white head. Yeasty phenols on the nose complemented by crisp green apple. On the palate, a faint honey sweetness gives way to a dry finish. The balance is just about perfect. Yeast character is less present than on the nose. Malt profile is faintly cracker-like, the flavor being dominated by fruit notes of apple and pear. Carbonation is vigorous but fine,bordering on creamy, but still within the norm for the style. Overall, more than a great beer - a work of art.

Poured from 11.2oz into a dfh snifter

A: pours a hazy golden orange with a massive three finger head, that takes a long couple of minuets to dissapate. Leavses rings of lacing all the way down the glass.

S: smells nice and fruity, apricots/oranges, lemon...like a delicious apple juice

T: a touch of caramel like sweetness then the citrus and apple like notes, really nice, reminds me of apple cider with some lemon and grapefruit very very tasty.

M: nice and lush with creamy medium carbonation... Great silky velvety mouthfeel.

O: this is an excellent beer, nice and sweet, but not overly so with great fruit notes, and a great mouthfeel, excellent.
