Bottle. Pours a light amber, almost yellow with a cloudy middle and smallish, white head. Aromas of juniper berries, green tea, coriander, and a nice citrus hint. Mouth feel is extremely smooth, with a full and slick finish. Flavors of bananas, coriander, and a hint of berries on the aftertaste. One terrific beer that I will be sure to be purchasing again!

Really good stuff, but you can’t call it "subtle and balanced." Turns out, I like not subtle and unbalanced. You get a big dose of spiced tea, then hints of lemon, spicy rye, and finally banana esters. Very unbeerlike. The alcohol content, 9%, is definitely subtle. Happy I can’t taste the ramps.

Excellent golden, frothy appearance with good carbonation and full body. Tastes much like hoegaarden but more refined with subtle notes of chai spices and a little acidic/tinny lemon sting at the end. Overall, a great beer with a lot of character, but much closer to a traditional beer than I expected. As with most DFH beers, the high abv is well concealed.

Definitely can taste cinnamon and chai tea flavors. Taste almost like some winter warmers. One is enough for me though. It’s a unique and interesting brew, but too much spice to enjoy a lot of.

Nose is all black tea and cardomom. Pour is a dull reddish straw mildly hazy.
Strong wheat with extra alcohol on the palate, smoothly effervescent but a bit too mildly so.
Really interesting and tasty enough, just not really balanced
