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.

Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks alright; a transparent orange with very little carbonation and razor-thin white lacing. Smells of orange zest, caramel malt, coriander, and other spices. Tastes like it smells with a good mouthfeel. Not bad.

On tap, labeled "Spice and Desist". I’m assuming some legal action took place, and that’s the new name for this brew. Mostly hazy orange color. Thin off-white head. Head fades to minimal. Doesn’t leave much lace. Bitter orange peel, some sort of spice blend in the flavor. Interesting and balanced, nothing’s over the top in the aroma, but nothing stands out too much either. Little caramel malt. Some belgian type yeast in the body. Some light spicy taste, little sweet. Medium body. Lighter, kind of crisp carbonation. Nothing sticky in the texture, just a mild spicy orange aftertaste. Alright.. Flavors work reasonably well together but nothing stands out or impresses

Bottle at the Funky 8, Brooklyn, NYC. Yep, definitely plenty of spices in this one. Some caramel sugars. Good and rounded character. Quite pleasant, really.

SDalkoholic (2219) - Linda Vista, California, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Bottle from South Bay Drugs: Poured a dark golden honey color and created a minimal amount of foamy head. In the nose there is an abundance of coriander, orange peel and the spice grains of paradise which smells delicious and made my salivary glands start up right away. Actually smells similar to a true authentic Belgian witbier style. The flavor is the same high dosage of all the same elements and is just completely dominated by the grains of paradise and coriander. Also, there is a sweet and tart flavor of orange peels and has the same taste as the flesh of a tangerine. There is a little bit of a imbalance going on within this brew but since this was my first beer by Iron Fist, I have to admit that I’m impressed.

orange color, a lot of foamy white head. Nose is all coriander and orange peel. Flavor dominated with Belgian spice notes. May have been a bad bottle, as it foamed up like crazy.
