Wowzers. Indulged this beer in a goblet.
A: Pours a cloudy golden honey color, with a very bubbly quarter inch white head that lasts a few minutes before dissipating leaving foamy, airy remnants on the edges of the glass, never really seen a head like this, reminds me of bath bubble soap. It's contrasted with lower amounts of lacing, though there is quite some patchwork. Very pretty for having such a light color.
S: Smells delicate, honey, can pick up on its sweetness, very grainy, strong wheat smell, like bread, smells yeasty too, tinge of hops, herbs, spices.
T: Very sweet, very balanced, its really carbonated too, but its so sweet, has a good citrus flavor, for having a higher ABV, can barely taste it, its amazing. Picking up malt flavors, little bit of hops, interesting yeast flavor and texture, kind of reminds me of pizza dough. Got a twang from the spices, herbs and hops as well.
M: Super carbonated, but its amazing, its so well balanced, the flavors totally block out the over carbonation and booze too, I would not know this was 8.5% if it wasn't specified on the bottle. Has almost no aftertaste too. Props for the equilibrium of carbonation, alcohol and flavor. Carbonation usually bothers me, but there's no way I could disagree with this beer.
O: The best beer I've ever had hands down, an amazing mixture of complexity and sweetness contrasted against super carbonation leaves with a super crisp and fulfilling feel. If there's a beer you should try, it would be this one, It's extraordinary, it's the best beer I've ever had.

Pours a one finger bubbly white head, hazy golden yellow body. Lots of bubbles rising to the top. Beautiful.
Sweet banana bread, cinnamon, and clove in the aroma. Slight citrus and floral notes.
Some sort of spice-like note on the tongue. Grassy and earthy. Citrus and floral on the back of the tongue. Bit of cinnamon and clove.
Lot's of carbonation, nice smooth mouthfeel.
