Uploading from Beer Buddy App. Notes from memory. Very interesting brew. Peppermint seemed to be the dominant flavor. Kinda made us wonder if something was wrong with the bottle. Worth trying if you're looking for a change of pace.

Sample from a bottle at Natifest. Clear darker orange color. Little off-white head. Orange zesty taste. Sweet malts. Big body, light carbonation. Lite bite. Not my thing. Too sweet.

Bottle shared by mdfb79. Thanks Dan!
A: This brew appears sightly hazy and light orange in color. The head is rather small and leaves virtually no trace of its existence. I’ll take age into consideration.
S: The aroma is a huge blast of spruce and pine, but not in a hop or IPA kind of way. This beer smelled of pine cones and evergreen trees. Interesting...
T: The palate is bombarded with spruce, mint, herbs, and an odd, earthy flavor.
M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
D: I had trouble getting this one down. Too aggressive, unbalanced, an odd. It was fun to try, though.

Bottle to taster at Natifest. Looks okay; light-brown and hazy with thin white lacing. Smells solid; plum and tart. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Solid.

Thanks to jjfoodie for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the Belgian yeast, with some wheat and assorted spices thrown in. The flavor is similar, with a strong yeast component. I also get some nice pepper and spice notes, as well as some floral and rose notes. All of this is mixed in with some biscuit and wheat notes, as well as a good dose of alcohol, Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
