Pours a nearly opaque pumpkin orange with a dense white head. I get lots of spices in the nose up front. Allspice, orange peel, peppercorn, sweet fruit juice, and a bit of thyme or other light spices. No real hops, but it could have contributed to the light spice aroma. Malt seems light. Orange flavor with allspice is the dominant flavor. I also get lemon, some of the citrus acidity some of the wine is evident in the muscat grape flavor, oak is also present, but only slightly. The orange peel mixes with an herbal, flowery, nectar hop flavor. Definitely used noble hops. Feel is very balanced, hats off for doing that with a 10% ABV. Finish is dry.
This is a very drinkable beer with many facets. Although I may not like all the facets presented, it's still a pretty good beer.
