Bottled on 5/14/19. 12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours golden with nice clarity; small eggshell white head that fades leaving solid retention and lacing. The aromas are spice forward, but not overwhelming. Ginger leading the way. Some malts. The flavors basically follow the nose. There's a nice subtle blend of spices going on. More ginger leading the way. Mild hints of cinnamon. Hints of caramel. There's a touch of sweetness to this one, but it's also slightly earthy. Malts do their thing. Alcohol basically goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is nice. It's medium-bodied with moderate to active carbonation. It's sharp, fluffy, smooth and easy to drink.

This is a pretty solid brew. If you're into spice/herb beers, then this one is for you. It's still worth trying even if you're not a hardcore fan of the style. The craftsmanship is on point. It's enjoyable and fun to drink. I like it.

I had this beer on-tap in a pint glass at the Deschutes brewpub in Bend.

Appearance: dark orange with a light haze and moderate effervescence. Head is thin layer of creamy white foam with a nice lace. Great!

Smell: lightly sweet and very floral with a hint of toast. Wonderfully balanced. One of the best botanical beers I've smelled.

Taste: sweet malt flavor with a light botanical element -- I'd say lavender, chamomile and maybe lemongrass. Balanced and completely fresh -- wonderful.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and a very smooth creaminess. Great.

Overall: this is a simply delightful beer. Not usually my thing, but this is so well executed I love it.
