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.

Bottle. Amber. Old hops, coriander citrus nose, pale, slight herbal malts. Dry, medium bodied. Flavour follows aroma. Nice belgy style drink. Long finish. Perhaps a bit too dry for me.

@Basunen: ganska lagom örtig doft. Smaken är frisk, humle och kryddor. Ganska enkel men helt ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

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.

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

March 15th, 2013 - There’s only one other review for this? It must have been another Ratebeerian at the San Diego Epic Beer Festival where I stumbled upon this tropical treat. The aroma is hard to glean off the taster glass, but I think I’m getting ephemeral and elusive qualities, a bit like a saison. The taste is clearer, presenting a soft palate that’s light to the touch, and brings a bit of white grape juice, clean cotton and cotton candy to bear. It’s a bit light, especially given the crowded tasting schedule for the day, but quite lovely, even I if I’m not catching the glint of lime.

Pint glass night at eastbound. Pours hazy yellow with a fluffy head. Aromas were spicy as expected. Decent too. The flavor was hoppier than I had expected. I got more of a Belgian IPA vibe than others’ saison vibe but I can see that too. No bad.

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.
