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.

Tap at Maduro pre GTMW 2014. Sweet mead. Rich, sweet. Orange-tan body. Pretty brutal beer in the morning/afternoon! Tasty and unique. Mead IPA.

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.

Worst beer ever put on tap. Bells is so much better than this jack mixed with an IPA. Would prefer a bud lime over this proofed urine.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Fraser's. The pour looks like a strong unfiltered cider. There is definite gradients forming due to settling. The color is an amber with the sediment coming in a light grayish brown. There is minimal carbonation and a small ring of white. The aroma is fruity, lightly, with a bit of a cider character and a ton of booze. Damn. It's like sniffing a fruity bourbon. The flavor starts out great. There is a light fruitiness and some great initial hoppiness before it explodes. Booze. All booze. Pure bourbon. Hot damn. There is honey and fruit, but it's all booze. The mouth feel is thin, no carbonation at all, and the heat sits on the tongue like a bourbon. I might have to try this again when it settles down.
