This is just not a style I have ever enjoyed, I keep trying them hoping to find one I like, but there is just something about the finish I did not like on this one. It was almost soapy.

A - Golden body, mostly clear, with a medium white head. Lacing is present but not expansive.

S - Fruity. White wine. Grapes. Apples. And a definite hint of alcohol.

T - Like the nose, but with greater depth. A back end with some lingering mild minerality. A note of honey. Lots of apple.

M - Given that the beer is over 8%, the feel is surprisingly light and easy. Carbonation is bright. Close is pretty clean.

O - A pleasure. A very fruity take, with lots of great esters, showing great results from the yeast. Very well done.

Aroma is floral and apple dominant, with notes of peach. Slight malt sweetness.

Flavor is spicy, with clove and almost cinnamon notes upfront, finishing laden with apple and peach. Pepper lingers.
