750 ml bottle poured a clear gold with a lasting off white head. Aromas of cardomom, pear, citrus, vanilla and light oak. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of cardomom, vanilla, fruittiness, straw and light oak with a smooth lingering fruity finish. Popskull was better.

Tap. Pours hazy yellow with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is average malt (bread, cookie, meal, cereal), light hops (herbal), and average esters (apple/pear) with notes of pepper, coriander, ginger, and cardamom. Flavor is heavy malt (bread, cookie, grainy, hay, straw), average hops (herbal, floral), and average esters (apple/pear) with notes of pepper, honey, ginger, and cardamom. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation, low creaminess with a dry finish.

adnielsen (9025) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 13, 2011
Bottle @ Cheeky Monk. Pours a slightly hazy red-orange appearance. Spicy Belgian aroma with orange peel and a strong cardamom smell (smelling similar to my girlfriend’s Christmas cookies). Spicy, fruity Belgian flavor. Light body with orange peel, cardamom, and maybe coriander (it could just be the cardamom). Spicy, fruity, light Belgian ale finish. The spiciness covers up the alcohol though I’m not completely sold on the flavor. As with other Dogfish Head beers, very interesting beer even if it’s not my favorite.

hopdog (8867) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2011
750ml bottle. Deep golden pour with an averaged sized head. Lots of cardamon with wood, citrus and fruitiness. A little too spicy for me.

GT2 (8380) - San Diego County, California, USA - JAN 10, 2011
750mL courtesy of CaptainCougar. Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a healthy, white head with good retention and very nice lace. In my notes I have here, "Smells like Christmas bullshit." I’m going to interpret that as wrapping paper, plastic, Christmas tree pine, and attic cedar. There are also notes of mint, lemon, spicy tamarind candies, and something odd that has been replaced by: "Christmas bullshit." The taste is mint, big alcohol, big sugary sweetness. Pretty much an under attenuated mess. Herbal spices try to restrain 9.5% abv and big candi unfermentables. Diabetic bomb.

jtclockwork (8250) - , New Jersey, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear golden orange with white head. Nose/taste of cardamom, orange peel, vanilla, oak, burnt sugar, beet sugar, ginger, citrus and bready lemony malt. Some brandy/alcohol in finish. Medium body.

Bottle. Cardamom and eucalyptus aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Cardamom/cinnamon malt flavor with light bitter alcohol finish. Intensely spicy.

750ml bottle. It pours a nice golden color with a foamy white head that billows up pretty high. It sticks for a bit and recedes but with not too much lacing. Cardamom dominates the smell, though there is enough complexity coming from the oak and brandy. It also has a huge spicy Belgian yeast character and some medicinal/herbal hops. The flavor is sweet with more of the brandy/oak flavor coming through. There is a huge fruitiness and the cardamom/yest spice. The cardamom might be a little overused here, but all-in-all not a bad brew. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-22-2010 02:58:42
