Pours a light amber with a white foam head. Aroma is chai tea and berries. Flavor is the same, sweet, with a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Very easy to drink and delicious.

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.

Cloves and bananas in this pale orangeish hazy brew with a small white head of tiny bubbles. I get a spicy flavor much like the aroma with a christmas flavor a medium body and decent carb.

Bottle (750ml): pours cloudy golden. Smells spicy. Wow this is different. Not bad but different. Spices are very strong, cinnamon and tea? not sure what juniper berries taste like. Not bad but too many others that I would rather drink

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle. Pours a pale golden, slight haze, big fluffy white head with killer retention and lacing. Nose is lots of spice (the chai blend come sthrough clearly with the cardamom, cloves and coriander) some banana, grass, daffodils. Mouth is medium bodied, medium sweet, rye coming through, a lot of the flavors that are in the aroma -- spices, florals, grasses, yada, yada, yada. The only disappointment is that I’m not getting the juniper berries -- which is what I was most looking forward to -- and I imagine it might be overpowered by the spices added in. Regardless, this is a very tasty beverage and would be exceptionally good during the late fall when the air gets chilly and damp here in Chicago.
