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.

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

VsXsV (2657) - Linköping, SWEDEN - MAR 24, 2014
Bottle. Hazy amber liquid with small to medium white head. Aroma of banana, clove, butter, spices, smoke and bread. Taste is very light sweet and light bitter with notes of bread, spices, smoke, banana and clove. Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation. Meh.

MrHult (401) - 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.

presario (4817) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 1, 2011
Bottle. Dark copper with thin lasting bright white head. Aroma is herbal, spicy and peppery; Saison like with a hint of citrus. Thin biere de garde lemon flavour. I liked it until I tasted it.

rodenbach99 (3466) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 17, 2013
Bouteille de 75cl. (bue en compagnie de Patrick). Liquide cuivrée avec une mousse blanche durable. Au nez une tonne d’épices, des oranges, de la coriandre et du sucre brun. Ce nez est trop sucré et laisse présager le pire pour la bouche. Ce qui fut confirmer à la première gorgée avec ce sucré, épicé piquant. Il y a une tonne de malt sucré, un mauvais alcool (surprenant). Elle écœure comme un mauvais barley wine.

SlovakSniper (3647) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2013
75 cl. Une belle robe cuivrée et sa mousse largement montée et bien solide. Un nez de malts roux et de sucre d’orge avec des parfums nets d’oranges confites macérées dans une soupe épicée. Sur les papilles, un liquide presque liquoreux et bien épicé, chargé par la force des malts et par la sucrosité d’une liqueur faite à base d’oranges douces et amères. En bouche, un corps bien rond avec un pétillement actif et une texture presque collante. En finale, un étrange mélange de douceur, d’acidité, d’amertume et de notes chaudes. Une bière difficile à boire. Iron Fist me fait penser au Saint-Bock : un brasseur qui présente un catalogue éparpillé et sans grand intérêt.

panacea (94) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - MAY 10, 2014
Visually, nothing special. Pale brown and medium lasting head. Nose is herbs, spices and belgian yeast. Not to much on the palette, some of the spices defined on the label, belgian yeast and lots of carbonation. Rather thin body.

Bottle ar Peo, thanks. Aroma of aftershave. Perfume taste. Koriander and citrus taste. Small body and small sweetness.
