Bottle...Orangey pour with a short lived head and bready nose. The flavor is heavily toffee/raisin with a bit of barnyard funk and candi sugar. Pretty good, but would have liked a little more hop assertiveness as well as bitterness to balance the sweetness.

Bottle. Pale amber low carbonation. Sweet raisin aroma. First taste comes over sweet. Mellows to some funkiness in the middle with mild bitterness but finishes sweet and slick. Taste of honey toffee and vanilla. Not much of a hop profile. Ok but a bit sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured a reddish amber color. A bit hazy with a small white head. Aroma has a sweet and slightly syrupy note. Some Belgian yeast in the aroma with some resin too. Taste is toasted with nice malty flavors. Fruity notes too with some tart hints. A tad undercarbonated. Overall it’s not bad, good malty flavors, but the balance is a little strange.

750 ml bottle. Pours a golden amber with a quick dissipating frothy white head. Smells bready and like sweet caramel. You get some bread, hops, and caramel right off. The hops linger and the malt balances it well. It’s full bodied and creamy on the palate.

Pours an orange brown color with no head. Aroma of citrus and spice with a flavor of orange, spice, and bread. Nice beer.

Hazy gold with a small, creamy off-white head. Sweet, spicy, fruity aroma. The flavor starts tart and bitter with some spicy sweetness as it finishes. Interesting beer.
