The aroma is cereal grains, wheat, bubblegum, banana. The appearance is clear gold, white head. The flavor is spicy, belgian yeast, fruit, bubblegum. The finish is spicy, sweet, like bubblegum, peppery belgian yeast. Medium in body. Pretty nice.

Pouring at BBF in Boston. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Big spices, coriander, orange with lots of bright yeast and possibly a cedar note? Medium-bodied, soft wheat, smooth. Wheat, not really boozy, warm musk into the the finish.

Tmoney99 (10584) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Draft. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy yeast, citrus balanced aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where surpassed.

bob_w (294) - new york, New York, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Really nice spicy, clove aroma. a little bit of esters. Hazy medium gold color, reasonable head. Complex melange of spice flavors melding with a tangy, sweet malt note, finishing with a balanced bitter note. Solid body.
