Saint Arnold Divine Reserve 14 has a thin-to-medium, off-white head, a very clear, quite bubbly, burnished gold appearance, and a good amount of lacing left behind. The aroma is sweet and spicy, and the flavor is of spicy, sweet grain, a bit of grain husk, some low-level bitterness, and an underlying alcohol presence. Mouthfeel is slick and medium, and Saint Arnold Divine Reserve 14 finishes semi-dry, slightly alcohilic, and smooth. Overall, this is one to get!

Thick, foamy white head on top of a clear amber. Peppery yeast aromas with a hint of clove. Some grass aroma as well. Faint hop bitterness. The taste was a letdown after the complex smell. The first few initial sips were unpleasant with an overwhelming metallic taste and strange sweetness. After it warmed up a bit and sat out, the metallic taste seems to have faded some. The remaining flavors are good. Spicy hops and yeast. Grass. Pepper. Cloves and other floral notes. Sweet malts at the end that are a little too sweet for my tastes. Loaded with carbonation that I expected and look forward to in the style.

I was let down overall by this one. At $15 for a six pack, I was expecting a lot more. The inital metallic taste somewhat skewed my reviewing as did the overrich sweetness at the end of the sip.
