The head of fine bubble, off-white, does not hold too long, it leaves a light film on the surface of the drink.
Very intense aroma, slightly fruity notes of apples and sweetness characteristic of honey. All this is quite delicate and not intrusive.
The taste is only honey, but in an amount moderate, not too sweet. Gentian negligible, such as with strong tea, with every sip at the finish is stronger.
Barbar generally not exaggerating in any way, well hidden alcohol, drink a little and happy.

(3.75) A: Clear amber coloured with a copper hue and pours with a sizeable and dense head.

(3.5) S: Cloves, wheat, pineapple, apple, honey, and hints of floral. Nice belgian yeast, fruits, and a noticeable honey sweetness present.

(3.25) T: Similar to aroma with pineapple and honey sweetness followed by a grain and floral bitterness. Theres a bit of an odd/off taste here and I can’t narrow it down – it may be the clove/floral combination or yeast as others have noted.

(3.5) M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a creamy, oily mouthfeel.

(3.5) D: This is decent and it does get better after a glass or two, perhaps as it warms. There is a bit of an off taste though and the alcohol is noticeable.
