22 oz. bottle from Hayduke. We shared it via facebook chat. There was some sediment on the bottom of the bottle and after being rolled made this cinnamon colored beer quite hazy. It had a nice foam on top that had a gold tint to it and it never completely went away. Ron and his brother, Rick, reported an unpleasant odor but not so in my bottle. It was fruity and malty. More malt than fruit was tasted. There was enough hops to add soft fruit and some bitterness. Later some earthiness was tasted and then a bit of spice. This was nice. The after taste was kind of minty and had fruit. Not bad at all.

Big malty beer that is close to red in color. Flavor is a little weird to me and boy was I burping after this one. It also did not play well with the pizza that I was eating.
