look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a hazy copper color with a 1 finger white head that dissipates quickly.

S: Smell is very nice, caramel, orange, grassy hops, and spice.

T: Up front is huge nutmeg and caramel, light citrus and bready yeast, a fairly strong hop presence.

M: Mouth feel is a bit strange the beer pours fairly thick but it feels very light, light carbonation and a slightly dry finish.

O: Definitely different, this was my first beer from this brewery and it has me wanting to try more.

12 oz, 2013 on the label

Pours a hazy deep amber, tending towards a brownish color, with minimal white lacing for a head.

Smells of fresh grassy malts over bretty elements and a mix of spices such as coriander, lemongrass, and a very prominent fresh ginger.

Tastes of fresh bready malts with a bit of caramel richness over some mild grassy notes and more lemongrass and pronounced ginger. A mild hop bitterness in the finish.

Medium to full body with a fizzy carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

A truly unique and pretty good stronger ale, a lot to like here. Also a lot of love-it-or-hate-it spicing. Personally, I tend towards liking this ale which feels most like a Belgian saison but with notable Asian influence.
