2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours from a 750 mL bottle into a snifter.
This has a hazy apple cider color; there is an amber tint to a caramel colored beer. A fast-fading off-white head leave just a ring around the edge of the glass.
The aroma is apple cider, caramel, ethyl alcohol, and vanilla.
The flavor is fairly harsh. Apple cider, autumn spices, banana, clove, and Belgian yeast. The finish is funky and off-putting, with a vinegar and slimy bitterness.
The body is medium, with a bubbly creamy carbonation, a strong booziness, and some strange oily and sticky sensations.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nose is nice - lots of estery Belgian yeast, banannas, clove. Light, clear amber yellow with a hint of white foam. Taste starts off pleasant. Banannas, clove, but finishes really odd. Thereís a skunky stale aftertaste that is unpleasant. Palate is a little under carbed. Overall, not something that I enjoyed.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle provided by Matt, thanks for the Oklahoma tick! Copper in color with a very minimal head formation. The head is off-white/light yellow in color and somewhat soapy in appearance. Nose is full of spice and Belgian yeast, some dark fruit. Flavor is off-putting to start, itís big time spice, like almost pumpkin spice? Cinnamon, nutmeg, Belgian yeast, and dark fruit. Decent carbonation, medium body, and no booziness. Not a very impressive beer, hopefully their other offerings are better than this.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Hazy dirty-orange ale with a small, creamy, white head. The nose is a medley of golden raisin, clove, ethanol and pear. Smells like an example of a Belgian Ipa. Medium-bodied with soft carbonation. The flavor presents pale malts enhanced by moderate fruity bitterness and spicy Belgian esters and phenols. Minerally, modestly sweet finish. Bottle kindly shared by biggsbowler!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Tapwerks OKC. Nice deep brown-tinted bronze. Moderate lacing. The character is firmly in the cane sugar vein, but this is very drinkable and flat out enjoyable. I dare someone to blind taste test this and guess itís brewed in Oklahoma! Well done. (#4153, 6/30/2011)
