Notes/Commercial Description:
Fermented with a Belgian ale yeast, this blend of barley & wheat malts yields a mixture of clove and fruity aromas, all without the use of any spices. Deliberately brewed to retain a cloudy appearance.

Appearance - 4/5
Light golden orange, with about 1/2 finger of white head upon pouring, dissipates to a ring of carbonation on the edges. Very hazy, can't see through it at all. Overall I really like the color and the haziness. I would have liked more head to stay around.

Smell - 3.5/5
A bready aroma with earthy spiciness, similar to some saisons. Orange peel and lemon.

Taste - 3.6/5
Tastes basically like the aroma. A bready spicy flavor, with orange and lemon citrus flavors. The flavor is okay, not really what I was expecting from this beer though.

Mouthfeel - 3.75/5
Smooth and crisp, light to medium in body, a moderate level of carbonation.

Overall - 3.5/5
Overall this is a decent beer. My one complaint is that this is marketed as a "Winter" beer, but to me this beer screams "SUMMER". I don't want to drink this in the winter. This beer is something I would drink outside on a warm summer evening.

Weighting: Appearance 15%, Smell 15%, Taste 35%, Mouthfeel 15%, Overall 20%
