A nice slow pour into my over-sized wine glass delivered two fingers of very noisy foamy head. Body is a muted gold color, with a lot of fizz going on.

Yeast and spice scream at the nose. Smells of very earthy and gardeny hops, with slight breadiness and pepper.

Wheat, yeast and peppery spice start her off. This transitions with a spiced bread flavor into a grassy hop taste that ends with a bit of clove. Dry but has just a hint of sweet in between flavors.

This one is very drying, and leaves a bit of film on the tongue.
