look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance; color is a hazy amber, some yeast particles floating at the bottom of the glass, huge, sticky head that retains very well.

smell; Smell is floral, lots of wheat character, slightly spicy, hint of citrus fruit in there too.

Taste; upfront is wheat, then comes floral notes, green peppercorns, clove and coriander, lemon peel in the finish.

mouthfeel; very carbonated but creamy as well, interesting contrast with the light body, quite dry at the end.

overall; This is a beer which is unique and complex, and not in a bad way, it is rare to say this but even though i won't buy it again for the foreseeable future i'm extremely glad i purchased it.
