Poured into a pint glass.
A: Wow, I've never seen a beer with a head like this one. It was easily 4+ fingers tall. It filled 1/2 of my pint glass with a meringue like bright white head. I did not use an aggressive pour because I was trying not to get any trub in my glass. The label says not to be too delicate with the pour so as to "create a luxurious head." I definitely saw that. The meringue like head stayed around for the whole 750 ml bottle. It was easy to refresh the head with each pour. (3 times in total.) The beer color was a cloudy bright yellow. Kind of like if you mixed a BMC & a witbier.
S: Cloves, Cloves, and more Cloves!! As a matter of fact, I grabbed the spice jar of cloves from the cupboard and it smelled exactly like that an almost as intense!
T: Again, cloves and more cloves along with a sweet after taste. I was reminded of those clove spice jelly beans that are common around Easter time. I really like those jelly beans and was surprised to find a beer that tasted like that but in a good way.
M: OK to good I guess. I was so overwhelmed by the surprising flavor it was hard to pay attention to this.
D: I finished the whole 750 ml bottle while making the baked ziti for dinner. I took the last sip with dinner. Next time I think I'll wait to crack this open until after dinner due to the sugary sweetness.

Apperance-golden hazy with a beautiful white head that sticks around for a while.
Smell - spicy, orange, hay, funk
Taste- orange, green banana, dry, slightly sour, hides abv very well
Mouthfeel - very nice smooth, full mouth feel
Overall - A lovely beer. Very refreshing, delicious and beautiful to look at. Available at a decent price. Not an easy beer to get where I live but will pick it up when I travel to another city.
