Lovely dark golden color out of the bottle. Nice head. Very smooth flavor, and really well balanced. Not too watery, not too thick, but excellent mouthfeel. Very enjoyable to drink.

Golden, hazy body with poofy white head which, sadly, leaves no lacing.

Clove gives your tongue an aggressive high five which is followed by aggressive carbonation. Final flavors are lingering clove and apple. I really appreciate the aggressive carbonation of this; it pairs well with the flavors.

Very very good.

This is a very easy drinking beer for the style. For a wheat beer this is one of the better ones I have tried.
