I remember this brew being a bit too overpowering in the spice area but now I have gotten used to it. The cardamom is the strongest spice by far but once you can appreciate it, you’ll like it. Good drinking beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Beer Geek. Hazy golden color with an emphemeral white head. Aroma is a bit menthol. Near medium body with spritzy carbonation. Flavor is a bit mentholic, quickly reducing to more regular spice. Whatever they used, it is really flavorful. Finish is a bit vegy, but that’s not so bad. Quite an interesting experience.
