2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Color similar to apple juice, no head. Much more bitter than i expected. Fruity aroma. Does have a spicy aftertaste as advertised. There are much much better beers in this style out there.

Golden orange in color... Aroma of Belgian candi sugar... Flavor is bubblegum sweetness, bananas and cloves initially which gives way to an alcohol warmth and spicy finish... Nice

Sample at GABF 10/11/2012, thanks to Bluemeow76 for assistance with note-taking. Clear golden color with a medium white head that diminishes quickly. Short strings of lace. Aroma of malt, citrus and yeast. Medium to full body with a fruity character and notes of yeast, dark malt and spice. The finish is sweet with a yeast and banana aftertaste. Above average overall.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Brown sugar with hints of banana and bubblegum, but faint
Appearance: Clear gold with a nice white head
Taste: Medium sweetness balanced by a light sourness with an odd finish in the back of the mouth.
Palate: Medium-full body, average carbonation, slick creamy texture, odd spicy finish
Overall: This is a solid beer, but the aftertaste is odd. Dry and spicy, slightly minerally, but off somehow. I assume this is "phenolic," and if so, it doesn’t work for me.
