From a bottle aged under refrigeration 6 to 12 months.
A: Gold with a very slight haze. Dense bleached white head with excellent head retention and lacing.
S: Sweet, pear and apple aroma with citrus, clove, and a bit of alcohol in the background.
T: Starts with a sweet, honey like flavor. Clove, banana, and pear characteristics middle through finish. Almost no hop flavor and very light bitterness.
M: Medium-heavy body and very, very smooth. Carbonation slightly noticeable in the finish.
I expected to get more from the cayenne and cilantro but might not have because of the beer's age.
Serving type: bottle

This pours with a radiant wheat yellow color and a thick foamy head.
The nose is a bit wheat, a little bit of Apple cider, with a spicy tone of chili powder and paprika.
The flavor is strong on the front palate with Apple sweetness. The middle shows substantial wheat grain and I got caramel malts. The spicy cayenne is more a spicy nutmeg or cinnamon and it reminds of some Christmas beers. The great thing is that the complexities of this beer seem to change with each sip.
The feel is light and crisp and disguises the higher ABV.
I enjoyed this beer immensely, it's complex, it's different and it kept me guessing.
Serving type: on-tap
