COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Variety is the spice of life. Every once-in-a-while, you’ve gotta mix things up. Our catalyst for such an excursion out of the ordinary is, um, actually spice. Spice of Life uses traditional brewing spices in a way few dare to. Forsaking traditional ideas of subtlety and cowardly “Pinch of This, Pinch of That” brewing techniques, we embrace the flavors and launch them into a full frontal assault of delicious bitter orange peel and grains of paradise. Beautifully smooth coriander compliments and orange peel perfectly.

MSBrindbergs (279) - Solna, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2014
Flaska från SB. Vackert kopparröd vätska, lagom grumlig med ett lite snålt skum. Doftar banan, kryddor och jäst. Söt men kryddig smak, dock lite avslagen kan jag tycka. Både sötma och beska dröjer sig kvar.

MrHult (214) - SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2014
Flaska från Systembolaget. Bärnstensfärgad vätska med ljust skum. Här snackar vi banan, både i doft och smak. Kryddigheten finns där. Inte så förtjust i banan men den är helt ok.

hackobock (1289) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. Hazy light amber with a frothy slightly off-white head. Aroma is orange, cloves, banana, sweet malt. Taste is sweet, some ripe banan, orange. Smooth texture.

VsXsV (2235) - Linköping, SWEDEN - MAR 24, 2014
Bottle. Hazy amber liquid with small to medium white head. Aroma of banana, clove, butter, spices, smoke and bread. Taste is very light sweet and light bitter with notes of bread, spices, smoke, banana and clove. Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation. Meh.

ansalon (1320) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2014
Pours hazy peach with a large frothy white head. Aroma is peach, coriander, orange, lemongrass, grass. Taste is orange, peach, coriander, lemongrass, resin, hay. Mouthfeel is very crisp and somewhat dry. Aftertaste is orange, coriander and spices. Quite good!

SamTheBarrel (404) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - MAR 21, 2014
750ml brown bottle, pours opaque orange-tawny colored with a small beige head, that reduced quickly leaving a little lacing. Aroma of herbs, spices, orange peels and banana. Flavour of herbs, orange peels, banana, pears and spices. Taste is light-medium sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied, soft texture and average carbonation. Overall a good beer, but slightly too sweet and unbalanced. The orange flavour does not quite go together with all the spices and herbs.

ConnyPetersson (75) - SWEDEN - MAR 21, 2014
Flaska från SB. Grumlig ljusbrun färg. Skum som satte sig fort. Disktrasa i smak men annars inget som utmärker sig

TychoJames (106) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2014
Flaska från systembolaget. Orange vätska vitt skum. Kryddig doft med mycket apelsin. Detta anas även i smaken som känns ganska rå. ganska bitter men samtigt lite tunn.

olsvammel (3027) - Örebro, SWEDEN - FEB 23, 2014
Sample at Systembolaget tasting. Fresh smell with notes of fresh tobacco. Similar taste. Feels like a belgian blonde that has been spiced somehow. I can’t put my finger on the spice though.

mrhoppy (1284) - Santa Clara, California, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Great hazy orange color. I like this one but the flavors are very strong. Big fan of the grains of paradise and there are plenty here. The beer is like a big imperial hefe with tons of spice. Nothing delicate here. Huge wheaty beer. Heavy body. Too heavy. It is delicious! Bitterness in the finish is a bit harsh. The beer does grow on you.
