2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Draft...GBOA ’06... Cloudy, straw-colored ale with a large, frothy, white head. Great retention. Tons of clove phenols in the aroma; nothing else, in fact. Clove-laden flavor as well with some subtle citrus fruit. Way too sweet and spicy; no semblance of balance. Between light and medium-bodied. Creamy with lively carbonation. Crisp, spicy finish. Everything I don’t like about hefes is in this one.
