2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2012 Bottle at Danís courtesy of Armin. Thanks man!!! Pour is very cider reminiscent; golden orange with a small white head that quickly dissipated. Smell is pineapple, light apple, light vegetables, pear, and wheat. Taste is light DMS, peppercorns, yeast, biscuit, pineapple, and pepper ending lightly spicy. Mouthfeel is medium with fizzy carbonation. Something about it is somewhat off-putting. Bleh.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice pour, with the rich golden look having a nice fizz to it. Quickly dissipates to a film. A really pleasant smell, perhaps the spice brings out the honey? A rich sweet smell that isn't forced.
Taste: Up front you get honey and spice, but there's little follow-through. I almost think the cayenne accentuates the spice, but then kills it in the aftertaste. Perhaps it does something to the taste buds? It's a powerful spice in an otherwise delicate flavor profile. Still though, I'm being harsh as it's pretty damn tasty. Some reviewers say it's watery? Disagree, and still can't believe it's 9%. It's a tad pricey, but I'd have it again

Pours pale gold into a shaker. Bright white head with good retention recedes leaving spot lacing to coat surface. Yeast and yarrow aromas. Soft with sweet fruity yeast, cilantro and bubblegum front to back. More of a wit than a cider - didnít pick up on many cider qualities.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Clear, pale, gold with a huge off-white head and decent lacing. Aroma of apple, banana, bubblegum, sour funk, and mild spice. The taste is nice and crisp, somewhere in the middle of a hefe and a saison with apple and a mild spiciness. I really donít get cayenne and cilantro specifically, but whatever is in this, the flavor comes together really well. Medium body, average carbonation, light dryness. Quite good.

The aroma is fairly light - it reminds me of a hefeweizen, only a little off. I might be detecting the pepper too. Color is a the yellow of a pale ale but with an orange hue with almost no head despite visible carbonation bubbling up. Taste is an interesting blend. I still detect the wheat of a hefeweizen, only a little off, but in addition a sweetness maybe coming from the cider and a spice maybe from the cayenne. Not stellar but imaginative.

Aroma is first sweet but then has spicy hints. Clear but light yellow brown. Has a very complex taste, I barely taste the apple with all of the other spices. Is sweet with a small cayenne spicy finish. Not my average fruit beer but I like it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Only two bottles left out of my six pack case of this so I figured I should finally rate this. Pours a sort of dark golden orange color with a big thick cream colored head that fades very slowly and leaves nice lacing in the glass. Aroma is like a wit with saison farmhouse yeast, slightly funky and slightly spiced, not getting any cider notes, but I am gettin some decent cilantro scents. Taste is yeasty with lots of wit and saison hints, lemony tasting, kind of herbal and grassy, sweet from the apples and a tad bit of heat from the cayenne, awesome brew.
