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.

750 ml bottle. Hazy golden with white head. Smell is caramel malt orange and coriander seeds. Taste is sweet caramel and spicy with coriander seeds and orange. Semi dry with low bitterness and high carbonation.

Peacehammer (622) - 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 (612) - 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.

750ml bottle. Pours amber with a slight haze to it and a white head. Orange, clove, spice, some banana. Sweet finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SamTheBarrel (497) - 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.

MSBrindbergs (430) - 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.

Senap (386) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 18, 2014
Vetefruktig och smakrik. Ingen beska alls. En lättsam sällskaps öl för en ljummen försommarkväll.

Franzen (354) - SWEDEN - MAY 1, 2014
Nice fruity aroma with mandarine and clementine with coriander. Hazy orange white head. Sweet malty taste rounded of with good bitterness. Something in the taste reminds me of pumpkin ale. Medium body, lively carbonation and dry texture. Nice refereshing ale that will make a good summer ale

MrHult (324) - 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.

circinus (225) - SWEDEN - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle 75 cl from systembolaget. Hazy orange with a white head. Oranges, coriander seeds, some sweetness, clementine, spice, peppery, nice bitterness, some peppermint? Medium body, lively carbonation, bitter finish. Very nice!
