A solid pour into my 25cl tulip glass produces a two-finger thick, pale, just barely tanned, off-white colored head. The beer is a dark gold color that shows a touch of haze and a bright, yellow-gold color when held up to the light. The aroma smells of clove as I pour it, but a closer inspection yields more of a focus on tart, green apple. A touch of grassy grain and some metallic hop notes in the finish round things out before a solid cracker like grain kicks in.

Nicely carbonated this has a pepper carbonic bit and foams a bit as it first hits the tongue. The carbonation seems to carry a flavor of clove with it as this is the most noticeable flavor during the first sip. The beer has a touch of herbal, almost tin-like hop character in the finish as well as a touch of hop bitterness. This beer is very light bodied, even a bit too much to stand up to the ample carbonation. A touch of sweet graininess is present, but only just barely as this is pretty dry. There is also just a touch of cracker like malt character, but not quite as much as the aroma would have suggested. There is a bit of tart fruitiness in the finish that reminds me a bit of pear and green apple.

This is not bad, but fairly bland. It could really use a lot more grain character (both malt and wheat) and if you threw in a decoction or two, well then we would really be talking.
