3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
50 cL bottle. Pours slight hazy orange and with a diminished light orange head. Clove, annis seed, cardemomme, cinnamon and ginger spiced aroma (the whole lot it seems). Flavour is smooth sweet and only with a mild fraction of the spices from the aroma in the flavour. Reminds me of a belgian wit added with nice caramel sweetness. Finish holds a smooth wheat like texture and a belgian wit like flavour. Quite nice flavour, overspiced aroma.
