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.

The label does not lie. This is a string brew. Spice notes of coriander prevail with a hearty malt backbone. Pours an orange brown. Aroma is minimal. Orange peeks through at the end pleasantly.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml bottle via trade with doubleo, thanks Kyle. Poured a thick solid brownish/orange body under an average sized foamy white head that has some serious lasting power with a small slick of head that lasts the duration. Aroma is spicey and sweet with lots of orange juice, grains of paradise and a touch of corriander to add the spice, sadly though a bit of butter. The body is averagely carbonated with a medium mouthfeel and a rather quick dissipating aftertaste. Flavor is much like the aroma with orange and grains of paradise dominating along with lighter notes of corriander, a slight hint of mint leaves and wet bread. Solid effort.

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.

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.

Yellow-orange pour with a white head. The aroma has some big spice notes with some orange citrus. The flavor is also very spicy with some bitter orange and grass notes from the hops. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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
