4.38/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 750 ml. bottle into a hennepin flute.

A--Pours up a little bit hazy (oops) tawny orange with lots and lots--two, two and a half fingers--of white champagne microbubbles. Excellent soapy lacing and retention.

S--Cross between cinnamon and clove, with a backdrop spicewise of pepper and nutmeg. Somehow not christmasy, though--maybe that's because of the fruit on the nose: lots of peach and a little apricot.

T--Plenty more spice up front and in the very back--more of that elusive cinnamon and clove mix, which makes it, what? Allspice? Somewhere in the mulled wine cheesecloth. Sweet juicy biscuit center with a slightly chalky pale malt tug. More apricot and even some pear pull through in the middle of the profile. Excellent balance and complexity.

M&D--Mouthfeel is soft given how full the taste is. Champagne carbonation keeps it light and lively, which brings out the fruitiness of it and doesn't let the spice overwhelm. Drinkability is high in the sense that I'd definitely drink this again, but low in the sense that at 9% you're not gonna pound two or three wine bottles of it. Definitely felt this even after giving a 1/3 away to my girlfriend.

Restraint is the word I'd apply to this beer, which leads to sick balance. Fantastic mix of bright, lively fruitiness with a sock of malt and yeast.
