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.

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.

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.

Peacehammer (624) - 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.

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.
