This is a great spiced/flavored beer. It has an unfiltered appearance and yeasty smell. The orange and allspice hits you right away and there are yeasty after-notes. It has a thick mouth feel and smooth finish. No harsh aftertaste and very little carbonation. This is a very pleasant spring/summer beer and one that will definitely find it's way into my fridge more often.

Pours a nice fairly cloudy amber with a decent head that quickly dissipates. Nice aromatic smell that is slightly sweet and very clean. Nice taste that is also slightly sweet. I really enjoyed the smell the best. Fantastic. A very easy beer to drink with lots of flavor.

4.04/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: Pale straw body, very hazy (and even hazier if you swirl up the sediment) with a few streams of bubbles. White head dissipates very quickly.

S: Funky yeast, light citrus, melon, and mild spices. Simple, but expressive and balanced.

T: The funk has some tartness/sourness, just a tad to make it refreshing. Again, hints, nothing more, of lemon and orange fruits, all underlined with very faint clove, white pepper, coriander.

M: Light, low acidity, but crisp and refreshing, fine carbonation- just the right amount, lively but not bloating or overly prickly.

O: Refreshing, a little funky to make it unique, well balanced, supremely drinkable- a great beer all around.
