This is my "not much of a drinker" wife's favorite beer. I found it once in Chicago for her then years later it became accessible locally. The price is salty enough to give one hypertension. Twenty bones for a four pack, CRIPES! I've drank one in my life and it tasted like bitter wine. I guess when my wife drinks she doesn't funk around. A beer too rich for me, in a couple ways!

A- Turbid golden colored beerwith a white fluffy foam that lingers a while.

S- Spicy and fruity aroma, specially cloves.

T- Very good taste, it starts a bit citric then sweet malty with a balanced bitter final ,the aftertaste shows a hint of coriander flavor.

M- Medium bodied with a nice silky mouthfeel.

O- A very good beer with high alcohol content that is not perceived boozy.
