A: A somewhat hazy medium amber with a deep orange hue. The white head is quick to dissipate and made of rocky bubbles.

S: Well balanced, moderate aroma of chia tea spices and an American Wheat Ale. The chia tea has cardamon, cinnamon and clove aromas while the underlying beer has citrus hops and a soft wheat aroma. There are light ginger and clove notes as well.

T: Moderate wheat sweetness with a moderate to moderately-strong chia tea flavor with the ginger be the more predominate flavor. There are other spice flavor of cardamon and a light clove as wel. Low hop bitterness. The balance is about even the finish is medium and the aftertaste is of tea spices.

M: Medium-light bodied with moderately strong carbonation. Just a slight prickle on the tip of the tongue.

O: A a great example of a balance spiced beer where you can taste and smell both the spices and the base beer style; to often the spice just takes over but not here. It not a beer I'd go tracking down or highly recommend but it's good for it's style and the brewers intent.
