3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours cloudy brown with a medium light tan head. Aroma is light chocolatey malts and caramel. Taste is sweet but mellow pine hops. There are definitely malts in the background with a chocolate/carob flavor. This beer gets more of a malt character as it warms and has an oily mouthfeel. Not bad, just a little subdued.

Pours a slightly hazy orange copper with a medium tan head. Huge floral hop nose. Fresh citrusy hop flavors backed with a full bodied malty bready profile. Strong hop flavor throughout with a bright finish

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer is awesome. Clear ruby red in color with a whispy kakki head that lingers to the end. Deep cherry in the aroma, grape, passion fruit, caramel. Medium-bodied, lightly carbonated with a lingering finish. Starts out malty and sweet, but not cloying. Balanced well with an assertive, but soft bitterness. Fantastic brew. A real treat.

Had this at the 2013 World Expo of Beer and this was my personal "Best of Show." A huge and richly complex brew of a beautiful orange color, Bellís knocked this one out of the park. Iíll be looking for more of this in bottles. Awesome.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured into snifter, a dark amber with one finger beige head a decent amount of lacing with some alcohol legs. Up front the aroma is citrus hops im getting strong grapefruit and also some pine followed by a sugary sweetness. The taste is very well balanced a very nice hop profile im picking up mostly those piney hops and some honey type sweetness towards the middle of the tongue and the back end is slightly bitter. The alcohol is noticeable but very mellow and fits in perfectly. Very nice sipper here.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
pours amber red with small off white head. Aroma is sweet bready malt with lots of hops. Taste similar with a nice balance of sweet malt and hops, a bit syrupy on the mouthfeel. Really good beer

I got this beer from my local liquor store after it was sold out...
This beer was a gift from one of the people who bought the last six. Payís to be friendly.
This beer is everything itís hyped up to be.. The flavors are so well balanced yet distinct. Sweat, malt, gravy, pine, chestnut, citrus, desalinated axle grease, bread, fireworks, bacon and a pony. Well, thatís what it tasted like to me.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cherries, roasted malts, and decent amount of hops on the aroma and palate. Coming in at 11%, this is nicely balanced!
