look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a cloudy pale honey color with a fluffy white head that quickly dissipates but splashes some spotty lace

Smell: Unusually distinctive woody lemon aroma, with distinct nutmeg and orange peel elements

Taste: Floral sweetness, nutmeg, vanilla and wheat malt for just a flash, up front, with the bitter orange peel and coriander flavors emerging to dominate by mid-palate; after the swallow, the up front flavors re-emerge to join the spicy flavors; there is an orangeade aspect to the finish

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with very prickly carbonation

Drinkability: A refreshingly different wit, with a lot of subtle fruit and spice flavors; each time I try it I like it better and better
