look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, slightly hazed, corn-yellow coloring with a ton of slow carbonation in the body, and a fluffy, dense, small bubbled, white head. Aromas of citrus sweet, bubblegum, toasted grains, subtle herbal notes, and some nutmeg and clove spice. Flavors are sweet and herbal forward, with a subtle cracker and bread backbone, and lemongrass, clove, and all-spice highlights, with subtle tart citrus characteristics. The herbal tones overpower a bit, and there is subtle hops bitterness that enhances that imbalance. Light, effervesced body, that moves close to astringent as the beer leaves your palate. The aftertaste is lemon-citrus and heavy spice, still. Dry, again almost astringent, finish.
