look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A light brown color, maybe more of a dark amber color is shown in the glass. A quarter inch high head forms on top, light beige in color, then dissolving away quickly. The sweet spicy fragrances of coriander, nutmeg, and cinnamon are the most noticed.
That is followed by a dark bread scent, with the addition of a yeasty twang at the end. The malt comes to the front of each taste, with the strong and hearty bread flavors, that blends to a spicy yeast flavor. It finishes with a mild earthy bitterness. The feel goes from light to a medium texture, a little watery at the front, then blending to a light creamy texture, with a touch of carbonation at the end. A fairly drinkable beer, with a dark solid look, a spicy and hearty aroma, along with malty and bread flavors, with a good texture, make this a solid beer.

3.33/5 rDev -2.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25
Appearance: Deep mahogany, before a strong light, there are ruby highlights and crystal clarity. The head is small, off-white and retains moderately well. Thin, glass-coating lace adorns the glass walls.
Aroma: Strong, fresh baked bread aroma dominates the aroma. Dark caramel notes are also present., as well as a subtle cocoa note.
Taste: Wheat malt is fairly strong at the open, I was hopeful of finding fruity esters, particularly banana, but these seem to be absent. Pleasant dark bread notes carry the taste from start to finish, although there is little else. There is a faint blush of herbal hops at the close.
Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, rather pleasant.
Drinkability/notes: Pleasant and drinkable, not outstanding, but not bad, either.
Presentation: Packaged in a short twelve ounce brown glass bottle with a twist-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.
