Poured a hazy golden hue with creamy white head. Smelled of coriander and lemon. Tasted sweet with notes of ginger. Very good, but a bit too rich to enjoy as a summer quaff. I just read the description and I can’t believe they didn’t use the spices mentioned.

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Fruity juicy, like peach or apricot, light spices, and light belgian yeast. Good, not great.

Apple cider, cayenne, cilantro...not usually things that I'm looking for in a beer but I try everything Dogfish puts out. White head, golden color and unique flavor. I probably wouldn't drink it again unless sharing but I enjoyed it more than I thought I would.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. This one is odd. Nose didn’t have the fruit elements I expected. Instead it was very spicy and filled with herbs. Taste does have some of the fruit elements in there that didn’t come through in the nose. The cayenne comes through and adds just a touch of heat to it. Very weird. Glad I had it, wouldn’t try it again, I don’t think.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber pour with a white head. Not as much herbal/spice character on the nose as I was expecting or on the palate. Taste is a fusion of beer and cider with some herbal notes in the finish. The concept behind this beer and this beer in general is very interesting. I enjoyed it, would’ve been ok with a bit more spice/herbal character but as is it is a decent brew that I’d say is worth a try.
