3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Pours a clear orangish body with a small wispy white head that retained as a thin film. The nose is really interesting and complex, lots of spice and herbal notes, the tea comes across strongest. A little bit of yeastiness and lemongrass. The flavor, despite being such a mash up of ingredients is still rather light and delicate with a lot of complexity. Tea, spice, Hefe yeast, some bubblegum notes on the finish, even a touch of smoke. Lingering herbal finish. Light bodied, fizzy carbonation, very easy drinking, can’t tell that this is 9% at all. I was really surprised by this one, this is one of the better DFH crazy beers.

Bottle at BBF2013 shared with a few other punters. A strange one this. Aroma is berry & tea. Flavour is a mix of fruit, spice, tea, a little sweet in general. Finish is zesty herb. Strange mix but it kinda works.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the Dogfish Head Brewery in Milton. Light gold color w/ no head; the nose was strongly of cloves, almost reminiscent of a whiskey-ish scent. Taste, however, was overly sweet, somewhat cloying. The inclusion of cloves, juniper, and chai tea are prevalent.

Draft at Shortys. Taste is drinkable with a mildly boozy aftertaste. Complex and easy drinking. I lime this cause I can't figure out what it's like

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 75cl. A hazy dark golden beer with a dense, off-white head leaving lacings. Honey, herbs, heather and juniper on the nose, none extreme in any way. Some alcohol too. The flavor is a bit sweet, with honey, bitterness, herbs and a spice hint. Heather too. Full body, a tad warming, and pleasantly carbonated. Lasting finish. Decent indeed, and not too honey-ish like honey beers tend to be. A bit warming though. 130810

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hazy amber pour with a white head. Aromas of juniper berries, lemon, and chai. Very complex aromas and the flavor follows suit completely. Inital flavor of malty goodness with the juniper berries and chai tea coming through. Just a pinch of corriander and lemon in the finish. Sweet, smooth finish. Very drinkable. This was a truly great beer, very interesting and unique.

Pours cloudy orange with a small white head. Large visible sediments in the beer that may seem off putting but do not have any effect on the taste or mouthfeel.
Smells-Spicy and sweet. Cinnamon and chai are definitely present with some hints of clove or anise.
Tastes- Sweet and pleasant. Cinnamon and chai dominate but there is a hint of black licorice that is very pleasant.
Mouthfeel- Thick full body.
Overall-Nice sweet/spiced beer. I will definitely try again.
