Wow... what can I say? Wonderful spicy aroma with a hint of allspice, sweet, honeyed flavor with a noted alcohol bite, beautiful golden color, nice mouthfeel. Should also note almonds and walnuts, apricot overtones and citrus. Complicated and great.

On tap at the Ginger Man in Dallas. A good example of the style. Has a bright gold color with a small head. The aroma is alcohol and some sour apples. The taste is bananas, vanilla and some ginger spice. Nice, but not great.

Piney, citrus aroma with hints of banana and pineapple. Yellow/gold color with off-white, lasting head. First pour is almost all head. Let the bottle breath for a minute or so and be careful with the first pour. Excellent lacing. Moderately sweet, tons of carbonation. This has the mouthfeel of champagne. Belgian wheat taste and high in alcohol. Good but not my favorite style.

Had it on tap. Golden color. Not sure if this is how it was susposed to be, but there was very little carbonation like it was flat. It was very smooth with a spicy and sweet flavor. Lightly bitter and alcoholic.

Packs an apple flavor all the way through, and yet is not overly sweet. Nice dry finish with a dark blonde to golden body. With a decent off white head that last’s for a while.
