look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

L: Nice clear golden color. Big whitish billowy foam swells and takes several minutes to recede.

S: Nutmeg and cloves. Wheat bread. Sweet with a tangy spiciness.

T: Malty and sweet with a tropical melon and mango. Mushroom and decaying pine adds a funky twang rounding out the sweetness. Long greasy and old bruised banana flavor lingers long on the palate with a little white pepper. Mild oakiness and definitely a note of peat moss through the finish.

F: Big rich flavors rounded out by an extremely clear feel. I love the light body and the carbonation finishes nice and clean with only a small residual sugary feeling.

O: Quite nice. I like the yeastiness and the spice is nice, albeit maybe a little on the strong side. And the sweetness finishes a bit strong for me. But I'm just being overly critical, it's tasty and rich but might be better in my opinion if it were toned down just a scosche. Maybe 9.5%.
