Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 16, 2011
12 oz. bottle, 2010 vintage, consumed May 2011. Pours mostly clear to very lightly hazy, dark orange amber in color. Rapidly effervescing streams of micro-bubbles scream towards the surface. A thick, spongy head of off-white foam slowly shrinks to an ever lasting layer with a pronounced edge, leaving dense, foamy, jagged-bottomed rings of lacing all over the glass. The nose is an utter spice bomb, loaded with notes of rose petals, hibiscus, coriander, and raw ginger, amongst other perfumy, floral spices. Beneath all that, a malty base of candied blonde and brown sugar looms, sweet and saccharine, with just a touch of floral hop character. Flavors follow suit, massively sweet, yet simultaneously bitter from all of the intense floral spicing. Coriander is overzealous, as is the minty-peppery ginger and stewed hibiscus flowers. After the swallow, I’m left with a mouth full of bitter, biting spices. Yuck! The palate is massively sugar laden, sweet, sticky, and cloying. Carbonation is soft and airy, but it can’t save this brew from its seemingly infinite flaws. Borderline drain pour.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
KajII (780) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - APR 25, 2011
Bottle. Poured a dark amber/orange with a small fizzy white head that was fully diminishing and had poor lacing. The aroma was of light grain malts, a mild citrus hop and a sweet belgian yeast with notes of banana, apricot, corriander, maple syrup and had a mild alcohol tinge. It tasted moderatley sweet with hints of banana, citrus and corriander from the begining and stayed pretty much throughout with the finish having just a little sourness to it. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and syrupy and creamy in texture with a flat carbonation. Overall all it was a good tasting brew that did a great job of concealing the high ABV, although it was just a little sweet for my taste.

Chipalsa (1307) - Florida, USA - APR 23, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2012 On tap @ Cigar City. The body was a nice and hazy golden with a bone-white head. Aromas were mellow and yeasty, with a thick and pleasant fruity scent as well. The taste was quite refreshing for a 10% (well-hidden) brew. Lots of delicate and dry citrus notes in this one, and malt backbone is bittersweet, like a fine honey. Not that bad, and very session-able.

DocLock (7731) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2011
Bottle. Pours hazy orangy copper with 2-finger off-white head. Nose is rock sugar, fruit, citrus, mango, hops, black peppery spice. Tastes a bit sweet, with rock syrupy pale malt, apricotty fruit, hops, spice, and florals. This one is very rich, very good, although ti gets a teeny biy hot and cloying late. A true diamond in the rough.
