nearbeer (4056) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 1, 2013
On tap. Lightly hazy golden-amber with a creamy ring of bubbles. Aroma of clove, banana, caramel, light citrus. Tastes of spicy banana, caramel, orange, vanilla, honeycomb, light spicy dry grass and pith. Medium body is smoothly carbonated and has a nice dry finish with no hint of the 8.2%.

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 (11684) - 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.

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.

Sample pour..interesting story on card..stuff about the spice hunter and kaffir lime leaves..apparently a mysterious brew that I found to be a nice take on a Belgian ale..didn’t find the spices too harsh and reminded of some saison characteristics..happy to have had chance to try..medium bodied..
