This bottle conditioned brew begins with sharp clove and wheat
flavors that quickly meld into a smooth, nutmeg character in a
sea of spice. Clove returns in the finish bringing a ester filled
snap. If you don't like ester dominated flavors stay away; for
those that do this is a solid choice.
Overall Rating - good.
|Sierra Nevada Summerfest
Fresh, fruity, and zesty, this beer is an acceptable choice as a
summer thirst quencher. It's pungent hop character is
enhanced by a citrus fruitiness throughout along with an
unmistakable yeast background.
Overall Rating - Above Average
Clove dominates this somewhat tart,
highly carbonated brew. Hints of
honey support the flavor profile at
mid sip but are overcome by cloves
in short order. A yeasty sharpness
allows for a crisp finish.
