From a growler purchased today - the 1st day of its availability at the Port City Brewery.

A - Pours a hazy golden color with a thick head that dissolves to a thin ring with noticeable lacing.

S - Smell of yeast, spice, and fruits. Touches of wheat in the nose as well.

T - It has that traditional Belgian style flavor. A nice blend of spices (I picked up the cardamon and coriander flavors) and sweetness. Fresh and a little on the complex side, which is nice.

M - Thin to medium bodied, nice carbonation level. Smooth finish and a slightly spicy aftertaste.

O - Tidings is the second straight great seasonal from Port City. It's a very fresh and tasty take on the style. Available in bottles and draft, I look forward to having this several more times this season...well done!

A-poured out a deep clear gold. Minimal head or retention.

S-honey and spices are abundant in the aroma

T-has a certain tangy quality to it. The spices, honey, malt and earthy hops blend quite well

M- thinner and smooth. Fits the flavor profile well

O-an full flavored holiday ale that doesn't overwhelm with its flavors

On-tap at Mugs Ale House, Brooklyn, NY

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high bright white head.
S: Light to moderate aromas of cardamom and other spices are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste starts out with lots of spicy flavors—coriander and cardamom stand out in particular—and finishes with some sweetness from the honey and some notes of ginger.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very interesting and complex—I liked how the honey helped to balance things off and prevent this from being overly spicy.

Serving type: on-tap
