12 oz can poured with a hazy, light golden body and a small head.

Fruity and floral aroma suggests some dominance of Belgian yeast. The flavor follows but has some funk too and features more light bready malt. Yeasty and mildly bitter.

Light body with adequate carbonation.

This was a lightly hazy peachy-golden color. It poured with a thick, sticky head that faded fairly quickly.

Smells of honey, pear, clove, and light perfumed warmth. Nothing overpowering but pleasant enough in the nose. I like this but it is dangerously close to being too sweet for my taste. It reminds of the time I fried pears in WAY too much honey. That was sticky sweet and this beer is almost there. Huge honey notes with light pear and flowery heat blanketing everything. There is a lingering clove flavor that helps cut the sweetness somewhat. Great name on packaging for a pretty good beer.
