Pours a pale gold, with a slight haze. A thin film of bubbles remain on the surface.

Smells really enticing with honey, biscuits, and raspberries with a touch of ginger, coriander, pineapple and a distant rose hips.

Hmmm, this is an odd duck. Tastes quite pleasant with a crisp and very light wheaty base with a variety of dry and tart fruits (e.g. cranberry, coriander) in the background. What compromises the overall delightfullness of this beer, is that there is a finish of friggin' potpourri. This is amplified when drank from the bottle. Better pour this one in a glass!

Feels super light and clean, but with a slight dryness from the spice.

I liked it; I'm glad I tired it. But, I regret that I got an entire six-pack. Just to say it again, POUR THIS ONE INTO A GLASS!
