33 cl bottle purchased at Pivovarský klub, Prague. Pours a cloudy gold with a thick, long-lasting white head. The nose has orange and citrus-blossom notes and hints of honey with a light clove-spice touch. In the mouth, an initial sour acidity is followed by a surprisingly bitter barnyard note, a bit of sweet malt and a chalky, bitter bite in the finish. Very well-balanced alcohol for 8.5%. Interesting, unusual, and clearly not your average daily drinker for most of us.

From the bottle. Completely not worth the price tag. An above-average beer without much to put it above your average Belgian Tripel. Fruity taste with a hoppy kick. Lots of clove flavor. Very nice on the palate, but I probably would have been more impressed if this bottle had cost about half of what it did.

Pours a hazy brownish-gold with a thin head. Aroma is lightly spiced... ginger on top, banana and clove underneath... nice. Flavor is subdued, but excellent. A nice full body at the start, fading away into spices and light fruits. Reminds me of some of the spiced Smisje beers. Refreshing and pleasant.
