imperial pint shaerd with my gf, poured into a taster glass. lot number marked but no date.

a - pours a hazy, golden shade with a finger and a half of dense, off white foam. head retention is good, calming slowly to a thin cap and leaving thin leggy lacing in the glass.

s - banana, nutmeg, faint grain.

t - pronounced spiciness with a light, crisp wheat base. faint notes of orange and lemon with a mild, earthy bitterness. well balanced.

m - lighter in body with adequate carbonation. coarser co2 profile, but smoother than their dunkel.

o - not great, but i enjoyed this much more than their dunkel. drinks easy on a lazy summer afternoon after getting out of work. would buy it again.
