3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Snifter at Max’s Taphouse
Deep caramel color with a minimal head and lots of legs. Sweet honey bourbon syrupy fruity nose and flavor with faint earthy pine hops. Great sipper, but hard to call this beer, more like a liqueur.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells like honey, melon, and a light whisky. Orange brown pour with white thin head. This is an extreme beer, very liqueur like texture, thick and oily. Some herbal flavour and strong sweet honey, difficult and interesting, lots of heat, very full bodied.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft that pours a middle orange with light carbonation light white head. Aroma is honey. Bourbon, orange, medium hop nose. Flavor is a mess but for me works. Plenty of honey in the flavor, bourbon, oak and lots of alcohol. It’s a lot scattered but I’m ok with it.

Not as harsh as I thought it would be but extremely syrupy as expected. Probably wouldn’t drink again.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sampled @ AZ Strong Beer Fest...and lived to tell about it. Bit of a horror story, really. How does a brewery like Bell’s allow a beer like this enter the market? Where is the pride in their brand? I understand that this is the intersection of art and science but neither works here. Hazy burnt tangerine with a super small soapy head. And by soap, I mean Lifebuoy (sorry for the Christmas Story reference). Yuck. Medicinal, alcoholic, uber sweet, weird lemon Lysol flavor, chemical elements. Just a disaster. Why oh why?

tap at 2015 michigan winter beer fest. Deep golden with minimal head. Extremely sweet with some definitely honey influence. Hops are present, but buried beneath the sweetness. Cloying. Seems very big, but not 16% boozy.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pour on tap at Crunchy’s, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of dish soap, floor cleaner, chemical, lemon, some medicine, hints of oak, some slight aged hop notes and alcohol comes through. Taste is floor cleaner type lemon, some chemical, medicine, some citrus rind, finishing with alcohol, burn, chemicals. Yikes.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap: The aroma consists of moderate citrusy dish soap, light honey, and alcohol. It’s transparent golden-orange with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of honey. The finish has medicinal citrus flavors, orange peel, and light alcohol. It’s full bodied with mild carbonation and a sticky mouthfeel.
