hazy orange, smallish off white head, lacy. nose is a bit airier than i expected, with the failtest trace of honey and hops. flavor was sweeter than i expected. mediuim bodied, light bitter finish. the hops kick in late, and linger with mild bitterness. an fun experiemnt, but i prefer the base beer.

#6 in the 12 Beers of Christmas: Golden pour with moderate white head. nose is sweet caramel malt. Flavor is lightly roasted caramel malt and touches of honey (but nowhere as prominent as the regular Gandy i had poured side by side. The juniper, almost non-existent in actual flavor, seemes to basically mute the normal sweetness and layers on, instead, a pretty strong dryness throughout, but much more prominently in the finish. Fun experiment.

Draft on tap at the brewpub (Flossmoor, IL). Day 6 of 12 with a base of good ole Gandy Dancer. Pours a nice hazy orange amber, a good offwhite head that dies to a thick film, laces pretty well. Aromas are very Gandy-edque, honey and rye with light floral bitterness, similar to the regular, possibly a bit of dry pine. Initial is similar, a touch of sweet honey, rye malts, cereal malts come on fairly strong with floral bitterness to balance. The pine really comes through towards the end, subtle, dry and piney, and sticks as it goes down as an essence. Really, fairly tame and very simlar to regular gandy.

On tap at the brewpub as Day 6 of the 12 Beers of Christmas: Let’s see - It looks like a Gandy, smells like a Gandy, and tastes like a Gandy.... Well, not quite. A touch of fruitiness seems to have been added to the spicy rye and sweet honey in the aroma. The flavor has a hard to decipher bitterness added to it. The juniper really shows itself at the back end with a gin-like dryness that lingers into the finish. An interesting spin to a standard go-to brew at the Station.
