very clear pale golden beer with white head, some lacing but not extreme.

Nice fresh smell, very strong carbonation bite, bit tangy mouthfeel.

very nice beer from a good brewery.

Poured a light golden color in an Orval Trappist glass. I found that it is better to pour this slowly,
to avoid a big head. Lacing, alcohol legs.

The lightly spiced aroma is good- I would have preferred it stronger.

Very malty MF, tart, carbonated and bitter.

Excellent spicy taste, finished by an strong bitter finish.

Overall: no bottle date, so I am unsure of the freshness-although the beer is 10%ABV. I was expecting more- perhaps more fruit to the aroma/taste, clove or another flavor. Good malty MF, and I enjoyed the bitterness, which overshadowed the flavor. An excellent beer worth trying, but I was definitely looking for more according to the ratings.

Pours a slightly hazy light gold with a huge head of foam. ..great lacing left behind.

It smells hoppy, spicy, lightish on the malt profile.

First thing that I notice is an abundance of candi sugar sweetness followed by spice like cloves and pepper. Slight bitterness but it can easily get overlooked.

Pretty lively carbonation to go with the medium body.

A well brewed example of the style and enjoyable to drink.
