3.18/5  rDev -15.6%
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.
