Pours a hazy golden/amber/orange with a thin white head. Nice rentention, and laceing. Aroma is of grassy hops, and fruit. Body is medium with some carbonation. Taste is explosion of fruit ,carmel, candy, and hops. This is a unique flavor. A must try.

This is an unusual and delicious beer. I thought it'd be rated more highly than 85. It was difficult to pinpoint, because it's not exactly what I'd call a winter ale, nor is it a golden ale like Leffe, but it does bring those to mind. After writing up my notes, I had to peek at top reviewers and I saw one which mentioned "cardamom." Rats--exactly what I'd been tasting and could just not pinpoint myself. Well, I'll add "anise" to that, the two of which will account for the unanticipated spice notes. Appearance and pour: 1/4 beady head with hazy golden, tan color. Very pleasing nose of chamomile flowers and cinna-mint (cinnamint sans gum flavor). Body: full although that is cut and masked by very active carbonation and a dry finish. Starts peppery, mid way smooth, lacto and barley drive-bys but zero yeasty bready Belgian aleness. Finish again peppery, spiced, spiked, dry. This is an interesting winter beer, and I'm sorry its uniqueness initiate a 'categorical error' in those who've found it wanting.
