A - pours a slightly hazy gold with an ephemeral head. Trace of lace. No bubbles.

S - clovey yeast with fruity esters, herbal and soft floral hops, soft malt. Pleasant. Soft-medium intensity.

T - is similar to the aroma, but it is somewhat difficult to describe in the general sense. To me, it tastes like a Belgian Golden Strong ale should. The clove isn't cloying like it is in some inferior German wheat beers, lol. If I brewed this, I wouldn't feel like I needed to change anything and would be perfectly happy drinking this beer which isn't the best beer I've ever tasted, but it's certainly a pleasure to drink.

M - light-medium body. Slightly oily. Light-medium bitterness with a short and pleasant sustain. A touch of heat from the booze and not even remotely harsh.

O - I remember drinking this beer a few years ago when it was only available in 750ml and liking it a lot. Now, it's only available in a mixed 8 pack and it's the star of the show. Give me this beer in 4 packs and I'd be a happy camper. A Gnomegang / Three Philosophers 8 pack would find a frequent home in my fridge.
