Six months before sell-by-date.

This is another one of those beers where I thought it wasnt going to be great just from the label (dont judge a book by it's cover...)

Bottle is cold, maybe 6 or 7°C (less than 45°F).
Pours a big head that overflows, colour is cloudy dull orangish yellow. No lacing.

Smell is cloves - I dont think I've yet smelt so clearly and strongly just one thing from a beer. Maybe if it was warmer there'd be more going on - and I still have to tip in the end of the bottle.

It is very carbonated - too much - in spite of the agressive pour.
First taste is cloves. There's that medicinal thing going on - I like it, but it's a bit too metallic in the finish. As it warms I get lots of fruitiness filling out the picture. Still got that medicinal finish but the fruit soften the metal.

Adding the yeast rounds it out another little bit - but not as much as I'd hoped. Fills out the aroma nicely though.
This beer reminds me a lot of Schneider-Weisse Tap 7 wheat beer - both really good !
