Dark yellow colored with little white head. Sweet and fruity aroma with peachy and raisinny notes, mild alcohol also comes up. Medium bodied, crispy palate. Flavor is also sweet with same raisins, aftertaste has mild alcohol with still lasting raisins. Not the traditional BSA, still ok brew.

1.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
11.2 oz. bottle. Pours bright gold with a ring of foam around the edge. Lots of tan sediment. Nose is pure sweetness, doughy sugared plums. Taste is surprisingly thin. sugary raisins up front. Light to medium body. Medium carb. Turns acrid in the back of the throat. Overly sweet - no balance. I can’t finish it, its aweful.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled 33cl. It pours a hazy golden, slightly green? beer with a white head. The nose is of coconut, thyme, cinnamon, litchi, orange, vanilla and peach accompanied by malt and yeast - a wonderfully fruity and spicy aroma. Lots of thyme and fruit showing up in the taste. Nice lacing. Slightly peppery. The alcohol is surprisingly well hidden. Medium bodied. Some vitamin tablets, litchi and mango appearing. Amazing peppery finish with a hint of cinnamon.

Bottle. Dry, fruity aroma. Hazy orange tinged golden color with a white head that flattened quickly. Medium body with fizzy/creamy carbonation. Slightly sourish dry fruit flavor with some offsetting sweet malt. Possibly some floral hop. The finish is almost dry, and a bit woody. Some citrus develops. Very good ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[581-20070906] 330mL (w/ jerc). Apricot spice aroma with strong sweet pine resin and wood notes. Cloudy, brown orange body with a medium-lasting foamy white head and some bits floating at the bottom. Flavour is sweet pine resin and burnt wood, some floral, something like ginger and a smoky background. Medium body has some astringency. Very interesting aromatic characteristics, alcohol is noticeable but not overwhelming -- certainly shows shades of snowy yeti slopes.
