Taster. Poured hazy yellow. Aroma of corinder, spices and wheat malts. Taste is similar with a hint of pepper and lemon zest. Just alright.

Caytinator (994) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 27, 2015
Pours a cloudy weird color thanks to the fact that it’s the last beer on the tap. Brown-ish cloudy. Tropical aroma, light fruits, taste crystals. Well-made and pretty complex taste, you get plenty of fruit but also a little sourdough and white bread. Just awesome, maybe the aftertaste is a little too strong but hard to get around. Rockin beer.

Pale golden in color with a white head. Spiced aroma and taste...somewhat of a menthol like character; quite interesting.

Patrickctenchi (4538) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Draft: Clear, dark gold with a small, off-white head. Yeasty, lemon, grain scent. Flavour is spicy lemon, herbs, yeasty... Not bad.

Pretty wonderful Thanksgiving beer. Certainly not as deep as the season would suggest, but wonderfully complex. Similar to a solid hefeweizen with more complexity.

Transfer from BA review on 10-21-13- Poured from growler into a snifter Appearance – The body of the beer pours a nice golden-orange color with a very small foamy white head. The head fades rather fast leaving some light foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is a rather nice blend of sweet and spice. There is a nice level of toffee and honey sweetness mixed with a lighter level of an orange and banana sweetness. The spice is biggest of a coriander and clove, but also has good levels of saffron and allspice joining as well. Along with these aromas, are some nice notes of a yeasty nature, some grass, and a nice doughy smell. Overall, with a light lemon aroma, the smell is very sweet and soothing. Taste - the taste begins with a nice doughty flavor matched with lots of honey and toffee sweetness. A cracker flavor comes to fruition quickly in the taste and is joined by other flavors of a more yeasty like nature. The spice is present from the start, but gets quite a bit more potent as the flavor advances. It is heaviest of a clove and coriander flavor with a lighter saffron flavor that is persistent throughout the taste. Some lemongrass and citrus comes to the tongue more toward the end. With the spice getting even stronger as the taste advances to its finish, and with a banana and light pepper flavor coming to the tongue, a very pleasant and smooth flavor is left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is on the slicker and more viscous side with a carbonation that consists of tiny, champagne like bubbles. The moderate level of prickly carbonation bubbles in conjunction with the slicker body are very nice for the spice and sweet nature of the brew creating a wonderful, yet soothing mouthfeel. Overall – This is a wonderfully spiced and quite pleasant drinking brew. It has a wonderful smell, taste and feel… If only it was more accessible and put in a bottled format. Very tasty.

OK, so what, a frikken nightclub, go figger. Odd yeast aroma. Taste is leather cloying sweetness. Its not as described by the bartender; a sour, BS! Not pleasant by any means, even for a tart lover. Gets strange near the end, heheh. Almost couldn’t finish this one, and I have finished every beer I every tasted. On tap at the magic tree.

shrubber85 (8582) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Draft. Musty/yeasty lemon and barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet orange-lemon, yeast and barley malt flavor. Nice clean, easy drinking beer.

Mad_Ferret (715) - SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2014
Draught sample @ Akkurat, 22/5-14. Hazy golden. Sweet and cloying aroma with banana, honey and heavy spice. Thick sweet flavour with banana, heavy spice, honey and yeast. Ouff, too sticky and cloyingly sweet for me. At least as a sample.

Keg at Akkurat, Stockholm. Hazy deep golden, creamy head. Fruity nose with coriander, marzipan and light citrus. Mid sweet with medium-full body and well rounded mouthfeel. Fruity with plenty of coriander, notes of caramel and marzipan. Honeyish finish. Mellow and pleasant.
