look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

I had this once before and decided to revist since it was close to a year ago. I enjoyed this from a 750 chilled in a tulip

The color is golden apricot with translucent clarity and 2 finger fluffy cap w/ compact beading and visible carbonation with good retention and lacing. The smell is light with floral esters and mild hops which are more herbal with light clove scent augmenting with some honeydew fruit and mild malt notes which are slightly nutty in the nose.

The taste is dry with some mild yeast accompaniment and both spice and light fruit essence are noticeable in the taste with a mild creaminess from the malt and semi-high carbonation leaves a mild mineral taste w/ mild herbal hops which are experienced as the ale finishes with dryness on the palate and low alcohol impact on the taste in general. Overall I was very pleased with this as it develops increasing in temperature the spice character and hops seem to emerge with a a very flavorful quality and well rounded taste in general with strength matching the feel. This is what I consider a total package beer-wonderful and a high value as well, highly recommended
