3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From notes Brooklyn @ Sierra. Really strange offering. Pours a deeper golden color, white head, decent retention. Spices galore in the nose, earthy, vegetal, some citrus. Palate is just as confusing, the spices dominate with a slight bitterness in the end. Just not working for me.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at the Funky 6. Pours straw gold, semi-hazed with a medium, white head. Dynamic aroma, spicy and floral, with hints of ginger and pepper. Flavor is fairly sweet, with interesting spices, citrus and moderate bitterness. Medium in body with fine to average carbonation. Dries up slightly in the finish, with crisp and lightly resinous hops, and ginger cutting through a good bit. A very nice beer and the unique ingredients work well.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I saw tepid, hazy yellow. I smelled heavy lemon sweetness, yeast, and light spice. I tasted bubblegum and alcohol. In between I discussed the finer points of engaging students in authentic science, hence the shitty notes.

Tap at CBF2009. Pale golden, low white head.
Fairly spicy nose: Tamarind, coriander noticable.
Spices are interresting, light proper burn towards the end.
Medium to light body, a bit sparkly.
Interesting broad flavor which keeps on comming.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Barcade. Pours a light golden amber. Nose is spicy with spearmint notes and light peppers an more. Flavor follows that. Nicely carbonates with lively little bubbles. It’s an odd combination of spices which gives this a very exotique flavor. Finish is bright and lively with spice and sweet malt notes. Very interesting.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle (unlabeled Brooklyn 750mL). Aroma is unbelievably complex, led by a musky-fruitiness, notably pineapple and oranges. The spices are very much subdued but undeniably present. I can pick out clove, black pepper, coriander, and ginger. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with great lacing from a thin but steady white head. Flavor is balanced and enjoyable if less complex than expected from the nose. Fruit up front with spice interlaced, leading to a bone dry finish with strong notes of cinnamon and nutmeg.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cloudy gold pour, whitish head. Damn bizarre aroma. Name the spice its there. Too much going on. Sweet spices, chiles, pepper...just odd. And I think the coconut addition was a mistake. Flavor is also weird as hell. Its a bit dry, spicy, tart, sweet...damn this stuff is all over the place. Friggin odd.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at BCTC 09. Pours a slightly hazy golden with a fluffy white head. Aroma is earthy spicy- lemon zest, very fragrant, over-spiced, cardamon harshness, with some clean minty hints and ginger. Flavor is earthy spicy- pumpkin, nutmeg, vanilla, spicy- hot chillies, Indian-food like, anise and fennel-seed comes through a bit as well- ginger and grassy- almost wit-like at times, citrus, curry powder, leather and orange zest- weird, strange over spiced brew- not horrible, but it is somewhat hard to drink with all that spice going on.
