Tap at Duckworths. Slightly hazy, more yellow than gold. Laces pretty well.

Aroma, Clovey, some mild fruit, bannan, apple.

Taste, lots of clove. Some biscuit and hay as well.

Nice and mouth filling. About mid bodied and almost creamy. Alcohol is well hidden.
A good straight forward version.

Served in a Shaker pint at Blue Mountain Brewery (Afton, VA).

A: Hazy light chestnut brown with creamy tight bubbled 1/2-finger head with excellent retention and multiple rings of lace down the glass.

S: Aroma is a combination of spicy and fruity yeast esters with a tangy wheat edge topped off with a load of citrus and floral hops notes.

T: The flavor doesn't work as well as the aroma as the intense hoppiness with pineapple and grapefruit notes clash a bit with the tangy wheat and the heavy fruity yeast esters. It almost tastes like a Belgian ale with the variety of flavors. The alcohol is not very perceptible and just lends a little sweetness. There is a light graininess from pilsner malt I assume.

M: Creamy with medium body but easy to drink with the low carbonation. Very smooth and deceptive kick.

O: I can see why some people would really like this beer as it is a melange of different flavors, but they don't fit together well for me with too much yeast character and a strange interplay between the estery nature of the beer and the citrusy and floral American hopping.
