4.08/5 rDev +13.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Aroma: Light orange rind notes up front, a little bit of spicy Belgian yeast "funk", and light pepper notes all play off the nose in wonderful fashion. At least with the aroma, the beer is as advertised.
Appearance: Slightly cloudy light amber pour with a very low, thin white head. Head retention is poor.
Flavor: Wow! Mouth-filling flavors that continue to play on the orange and pepper theme. Just a hint of both and they interplay in a lovely fashion off the back of the palate. A bit of earthy bitterness and some grainy sweetness that is quickly over-powered by all the spicy and fruity overtones. Balance is nearly even. Finish is clean and dry.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with lively, high carbonation. No alcohol heat or astringency.
Overall impression: A lovely spiced beer. I'm not a fan of spiced beer but this is light and refreshing with hints of spice that provide lovely accents while not killing your palate. A winner from Short's!
