Poured from bottle to snifter. One finger crisp head, fades rather quickly into thin film. A ring of head around glass edge, but little lacing. Darker straw color, and quite cloudy. Bananas and cloves on nose, with some tropical fruit and brown sugar characteristics. Hints of strawberry and clementine. Tastes very fruity, mostly bright red fruits and green grapes. Has a slightly bitter aftertaste, works well in the balance. Some spiciness. Higher carbonation and thicker, slightly syrupy body, though leaves a sparkling sensation that lingers. Does not seem like it is 9%. Delicious, complex and balanced. Though on expensive side (~$4/12 oz bottle), will certainly be buying more for special occasions.
