a nice beer from DFH and FFF. the alcohol is well hidden at 9.5%, the body tingly and medium to full. this golden ale smells of sweet malt, lots of spice (cardamom, which is fairly aggressive) and a hint of brandy and oak. the barreled portion comes through a little in the flavor, but this is a spiced ale first. Given high expectations for these two brewers, this was not a standout, but a pretty nice brew."

why the talk about this beer? .. Pours a hazy dirty gold, decent head . . lots of muddled spices in the nose, which follows quite a bit into the mouth, with warm booze and a good dose of sweetness .. all over the place! .. . happy to gotten to try it but iíll pass if there is a next time .. . Donít let her get to you. She asked for íPine Forestí, I gave her íNew Carí.

Thanks to someone for sharing this at the most recent Freetail bottle release party. Sorry for not remembering who provided it. The beer pours a golden-orange color with a white head. The aroma is full of herbs and spices. I get a ton of rosemary as well as some sage and coriander. There is also a little bit of citrus in the aroma. The flavor is also very complex. I get a lot of wheat and biscuit notes with the same herbs that I found in the aroma. The oak-aging also come through and I get some tannins in the flavor. The beer is fairly dry and very spicy and herbal. The Belgian yeast also comes through in the flavor, adding to the overall complexity. Medium to high carbonation and medium mouthfeel. Very easy to drink.

Draft at DFH with Andrew. Pours a bright clear yellow body. Aroma is sweet Belgian CA dying and sugary malts. Mouthfeel is sticky with flavors of sweet oak, malts, candy.

(draught at chumleyís) clear golden pour, creamy tan head that tends to linger. Nose of spices, Belgian yeast, caramel, and florals. Taste is cardamom, quite alcoholic, Belgian yeast, bitter orange peel, bubblegum, and tons of caramel. Medium thick body, huge alcohol bite. I feel like 1 is going to pute under the freaking table. Alcohol not hidden at all. Itís decent but so hot.

Hazy golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of cardamom, vanilla, honey, brandy, and alcohol. Taste of a ton more cardamom, vanilla, honey, and alcohol. The cardamom really killed this for me.

Bottle - 750mL crowned - courtesy or GandGKevin. Gold bodied with a moderate, foamy white head. Aroma is strong cardamom, spices, grains and grass. A little too strong with the cardamom for my particular liking. Taste, however, is much more restrained spice, bigger grains, strong grassy notes, and a pleasant, subtle hint of the brandy barrel aging. Body is medium with a lively carbonation. Finishes with more grains, grassy notes, bready malts and a touch more spice.

750ml bottle pours a lightly hazy, bright yellow with a cloudy, white head. Nose is minty, herbal, yeast, cloves. Flavor has tons of spice, cardamom, herbs, apples, candy, yeast. Full bodied, sweet finish. There is a really strong herbaceousness here. Not a whole lot of barrel.

Split a 750ml bottle. After having the Three Floyds version of this collaboration brew, Popskull, Iíve had high hopes for this one for some time. I finally got to sit down and drink one and well, damn. What a disappointment. Perhaps father time hasnít been kind to it or the brew just wasnít stored at an optimal temperature, but meh - this was just underwhelming.

Now donít get me wrong, the beer was adaquate, it was drinkable and even perhaps a bit above average but it was nothing like the experience that I had with Popskull. Gone is the dark amber/clear brown color, as well as the malts, chocolate, caramel, touches of fruit, roast, and oak character. This was just... boring. Oh well.

Poured a light orange color, with a moderate white head. Aroma was sweet malts, residual sugars.
