Poured into a tulip from bottle. 2 finger bone white head, dissipated fairly quickly with a little bit of lacing. The beer itself is a light burnt orange and I can see right through.

Toasty malts and some odd fruity characteristics, like grape. A slight astringency from the booze, but overall not a very aromatic beer.

Interesting, The first thing I noticed was how thick and full this beer really is, which I wasn't expecting. It's very, very sweet and very boozy. Some of the complexities from the malt bill are nice, but overpowered by the booze. There are some hints of spice and fruit, but not much.

It's good. It's different, but good. It's not my type of beer though, and it was a lot sweeter than I thought it was going to be. I was happy to try it, but I don't think I'll buy it again.

Gold and hazy body. The head dissolves fast and leaves no trace.

Smells of white grapes, allspice, and honey.

The taste is sweet white grapes, like a reisling. Finishes with herbal notes and allspice.

Mouthfeel is sweet up front but finishes slightly dry. Body is medium to light with prickly carbonation.

It's an interesting beer to try once, but not something I'd want to drink more than one of. The spice thing is not my style.
