Bottle shared with Spudclampdawg. Pours a deep orange with a creamy off white head. Nose is spices, toasty biscuit malts, dull citrus, and mild fruits. Taste is sticky sweet with spices and bitterness coming through. Mouthfeel is slick and medium full. Strange beer. Probably not meant for aging.

Bottles. I do not like this style. I was very disappointed when Bells decided to pick this beer for their 8000th batch. Notes of syrup. citrus, coriander, booze. Way too sweet. Slightly over-carbonated.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from JCapriotti...thanks Jason! - Pours deep hazy amber with a big foamy off-white head. Lots of honey, bready caramel, and a little orange juice concentrate. Taste is syrupy apricot with yeast, intense breadiness, and a bit of muted orange. Syrupy and well-carbonated. Expected this to be a drain pour, but it wasn’t. Obviously past it’s prime, but interesting nonetheless.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. A slightly oily, clear golden beer with a minimal head. White sugars and hints of spices in the aroma. The flavor is sweet and fruity, with white sugar, spices and hoppy hints. Full-bodied, with some bitterness to finish it. A quite nice one, but a bit anonymous. Wouldn’t shy away from having more of it though. 100212
