P: 750ml bottle poured into a DFH signature glass.
A: Pours a golden yellow with a tall white head. Lacing is good and sticks around through the whole glass.
S: You can smell the apples while you're pouring Positive Contact into the glass. In the glass I'm getting lots of grassy, sugary sweetness along with a distinct Belgian Wit aroma of spice, most notably clove.
T: Very sweet with some tartness, I assume from the apples. A good bit of clove and cinnamon. There's a some heat in the finish. I can tell if it's from the alcohol or the cayenne as it's fairly subtle.
M: Full bodied as it coats the inside of your mouth with a sweet film of beer. Carbonation is medium to low, which I didn't expect given the pour. The finish is a bit dry but still sweet.
O: Pretty good. Fairly refreshing on this hot day but perhaps a little too sweet to love or session for me. I'm a big fan of Belgians and this one, while outside the box, has it's roots in a solid witbier.

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
