3.18/5  rDev -15.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Pours a hazy, light-yellow color with a medium white head that disapates quickly.

Aroma is quite strong. Starts off as a wheat beer with lemon. Not too unlike Spotted Cow. But there is so much yeast, that it transforms the lemon into something a little funky.

Flavor is quite sweet & tart. Lemon tartness with not too much wheat at all. Quite yeasty, and quite spicy in the aftertaste. Spices include clove and possibly coriander. Definitely others. It may remind you of spotted cow, but side by side this is a bigger beer. More spices and a ton more yeast.

Mouthfeel is pretty crisp, with a medium thickness.

Drinkability is fine, although a bit too sweet for my liking. All that spice, yeast and sweetness is too distracting for me. Then again, some of the big beers I like are distracting for others. This just moves in the wrong direction for me for normal enjoyment. Love the name, though.

3.7/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12oz bottle into a snifter. The brew is a clear yellow color with persistent white froth from rising bubbles resting atop. Some patchy lace sticks.

The smell includes notes of clove, pear, apple and herbal grassy hops. A sweetness like belgian candy sugar is also present.

The taste is much the same, clove spice blending to grassy hops. Some pear/apple skin fruitiness with some straw aftertaste break things up.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. A decent mix of character that I wasnt crazy about but the hops kinda worked with the yeasty spice since it wasnt too bitter.
