Good yellow appearance replete with 1" of white foam and significant haze throughout. Looks the part. Aroma hit all that spice rack stuff they were talking about on the label.

Taste was wheat and coriander, this is a chewy beer with lots of malted wheat floating all over the place. Still too much clove and spice rack for my tastes. Some citrus rind. Highly carbonated. Must love spice rack to be all about this beer.

Newer SA belly pint glass nitro draft pour is a hazy dirty yellow floating a robust white head with lacing.

The aroma is spicy/yeasty/hoppy with more citrus than clove.
Flavors are similar with the nitro nicely covering the clove/cinnamon taste I remember from previous tastings.
Mouthfeel is creamy as expected from the nitro delivery and the finish is orange clean.

Given that it is SA, I still like their effort.
