4.5/5 rDev +4.2%
Poured the 12oz bottle into a Chalice glass. Nice artwork on the label and nice cap as well.
A: nice orange/amber color, completely opaque. One finger head that disappointingly dissipated into absolutely nothing. No lacing present at all.
S: a phenomenal explosion of well-balanced aromas are present in this beer. Some of the predominant characteristics on the nose are wheat, citric fruits, but also at the same time very sweet scents. Some spices and slight cinnamon present as well creating a complex yet amazing aroma. It almost makes you regret drinking the beer when it smells this good.
T: tastes very much like a heavy wheat and malty beer. Some sweet estery tones are present at the beginning followed by citrus tones and pepper. Alcohol is present in the taste as well which I expected considering the relative high ABV.
M: medium to heavy body, very high carbonation and dry finish. Alcohol is felt thoroughly.
O: what can I say, this is an excellent beer that is best enjoyed by drinking very slowly as it is on the strong side (sipping beer I guess). It's definitely a quality product that shines in its complex aroma and taste. A must try for all the beer lovers out there.

Poured a very delicious golden straw color with a really good amount of head that leaves pretty quickly. I didn't notice any lacing at all. If you look closely, you can see a plethora of carbonation bubbles racing to the top.
The smell is very sweet and I notice some hops and malt already. I definitely noticed the pear like previous people have pointed out. I can't wait to drink this beer!
The taste was excellent. It was sweet but they also did a good job of mixing all different spices to give it a unique taste. They also do a very good job of hiding the alcohol. This can be a dangerous beer! The aftertaste was of hops, yeast and I could swear I noticed a doughy taste in there as well.
The carbonation in the drink is delightful and the first thing you notice. After that it's all about the smooth and creamy feeling. The beer almost has a dry numbing effect on the sides of my tongue. I kept wanting to sip one right after the other.
I've had this beer before but this was the first time I actually took the time to review and notice all its subtle properties. I could definitely see myself drinking this all day long, but with the 9%...I'll need to take my time with it.
