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.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2012
Tap. Pours an orange color with a white head. Aroma is of spices like coriander, some orange peel, pepper, some sweet malt and lighter fruits. The aroma follows the nose I get the coriander, orange peel and pepper, sweet malt and lighter fruits like pear. The body is medium with a dry mouth feel. Overall a pretty tasty brew.

BiddleBrau (938) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2011
On tap at Iron Fist - Poured orange color with thinner head and mild carbonation. Orange spice in the nose. Bigger malt profile, still spice comes through and lingers. A fuller version of Belgian white but with less wheat.

monk191 (927) - California, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Overall, a nice unique beer. Pours a bright golden color with a white head. Smells herby, with some orange and lemon and wheat. Taste is peppery, with coriander, citrus and a spicy finish. Paired with Thai fish cakes, we notice less spice and pepper, and smooths out the beer. Had in the bottle.

Ingevara (802) - SWEDEN - MAY 18, 2014
High fluffy head. Tempting fragrance of flowers and resin, orange and herbs. Flat mouthfeel, low carbonation, medium of everything. The label build up my expectations but the beer doesn’t fill them. A rather average ale.

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - JAN 8, 2011
Poured from a bottle purchased at the brewery. Amber in color with aromas of sweet malt and some belgo yeast. Medium light body. Pleasant flavors with subtle notes of the added spices of orange and coriander. Easy to drink and well done.

This golden beer has a distinctly spicy aroma. Very spicy flavor comes through strongly. It is unique but not overpowering. Paired with fish cakes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Peacehammer (621) - California, USA - AUG 15, 2012
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.

hamilton23 (608) - Alpine, California, USA - DEC 20, 2010
On tap at the brewery. Pours copper with off-white head. Smells of citrus and cloves. Tastes similar to smell...loads of orange rind and some peppers and biting spices.
