3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light tan, hazy. Aroma of pear, nutmeg, cumin, pepper, very light malt-derived caramel. Vinous (merlot, I think, but I'm not a wine guy) palate. Caramel, chocolate chip cookies, flowery notes. Yeasty, sweet finish. Zippy carbonation normally bothers me, but in this case it really carries the beer over the palate well.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Wenig alkoholischer, deutlich holziger Antrunk. Hopfige Noten sind dabei eher nebensächlich, außerdem etwas stärker herbe. Im Mittelteil zunehmend bitterer, wenig schokoladig. Zum Ende hefiger, trocken, der Hopfen steht nun im Vordergrund. Ausgewogen, der Alkohol spielt kaum noch eine Rolle. Nett! /9/8/9/5/9

Bottle. Aroma of citrus and bitter hop backed by earthy spice notes. Hazy peach color with a decent white head. Medium body with creamy carbonation. The flavor is a bit woody/funky with caramel, spice and hop bitter. Heat arrives quickly. The finish is quite dry, almost astringent, and some medicinal wood and bitter hop are present. Very interesting; very tasty.
