Clear amber color with a fine-grained foam. Pleasantly sudsy in the mouth. Interesting clove and fermenting pineapple aroma. The brewer says this is made with a Westmalle type yeast, and the yeast really drives the flavors. this is really, really strong with clove. You get used to the taste after a while but it's quite an eye-opener.

Lots of the bubblegum flavor, but so sweet and spicy it's remarkable. However the yeast works its magic, and the flavors eventually dry out some. Still it's a malt candy delight that is more suited for micro-sipping. On tap at the Claremont Mesa brewery.
