A clear lemon gold. A single finger white frothy head quickly falls to a thin cap then a bare ring. Tons of apparent carbonation. Tiny trails up the sides of my glass, and larger ones popping off the bottom.
Aroma is sweet honey with a slight funky mustiness. Bright citrus and light fruit notes.
Taste is a continuation of the aroma. Somehow it goes from pleasant honey and fruits to a funky bitter finish that coats the back palate with a harsh pithy/medicinal bitterness. Maybe that's the blend of spices, I don't know but it really kills the brew for me. There's alcohol there as well, which is slightly warming and dry but that's not the issue.
Light body with playful carbonation.
A decent brew wrecked by some weird finish. Don't know what's going on but the bottle seems fine every other way.
