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.

A: The pour is a dark golden-amber color with a nice white head. S: Lots of orange, especially in terms of the peel. The amount of orange aroma is actually impressive. There’s also a fair amount of coriander. Strangely enough, I also pick up some fennel and dill, don’t ask me why. T: A good earthy and grassy flavor with plenty of sweet oranges. The orange peel provides a bit of a bitterness and some more citrus flavor. A decent maltiness and some strangely warming flavors. M: the body is medium with a low to moderate level of carbonation. D: I wasn’t really expecting to like this one, but it was one of my favorite beers at this brewery. A nice blend of spice notes and the base beer.

arminjewell (8620) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Pours hazy orange with white head, aroma has notes of biscuit, yeasty bread and spice notes, some fruity orange, coriander, notes of other fruit as well. Taste is a nice mix of spices that I couldn’t quite figure out, but notes of fruity orange and lemon, lots of spice and biscuit finishing fairly dry but also pretty sweet.

MSBrindbergs (595) - 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.

after4ever (6688) - Brier, Washington, USA - JAN 23, 2015
750, capped. Thanks, A! Pours a murky dark amber with a dense and creamy tan head that settles fairly quickly away. Big tangy sweet nose, lots of cloying oranges and orange juice in the aromatics. Kind of a boiled herbs quality there, too--sticky sweet but herbal and plantlike. Sticky body on the high side of medium. Oranges and weird boiled herbs on the mid palate. Sweet caramel unfermented malt sugars under that. Long sweet finish. Smells and tastes very interesting at first but after a few sips it gets to be too much pretty quickly.

Bottled. An amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and over ripe fruits, leading to a dry finish.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2012
Draught at TJ’s: Aroma of malt, flowers, spices, slight grains of paradise, and orange. Poured orange in color with a tiny, off-white head that lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer. Hazy. Not sparkling. Flavor is light to medium sweet and a tad bitter. Tastes of malt, spices, grains of paradise, and nothing else. Medium body. Lightly chalky texture. Average carbonation. Malt, spice finish is light to medium sweet and slightly bitter.
