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. 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.

SamTheBarrel (544) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - MAR 21, 2014
750ml brown bottle, pours opaque orange-tawny colored with a small beige head, that reduced quickly leaving a little lacing. Aroma of herbs, spices, orange peels and banana. Flavour of herbs, orange peels, banana, pears and spices. Taste is light-medium sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied, soft texture and average carbonation. Overall a good beer, but slightly too sweet and unbalanced. The orange flavour does not quite go together with all the spices and herbs.

Flaska från SB. Grumlig ljusbrun färg. Skum som satte sig fort. Disktrasa i smak men annars inget som utmärker sig

TychoJames (392) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2014
Flaska från systembolaget. Orange vätska vitt skum. Kryddig doft med mycket apelsin. Detta anas även i smaken som känns ganska rå. ganska bitter men samtigt lite tunn.

olsvammel (3885) - Örebro, SWEDEN - FEB 23, 2014
Sample at Systembolaget tasting. Fresh smell with notes of fresh tobacco. Similar taste. Feels like a belgian blonde that has been spiced somehow. I can’t put my finger on the spice though.

mrhoppy (1289) - Santa Clara, California, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Great hazy orange color. I like this one but the flavors are very strong. Big fan of the grains of paradise and there are plenty here. The beer is like a big imperial hefe with tons of spice. Nothing delicate here. Huge wheaty beer. Heavy body. Too heavy. It is delicious! Bitterness in the finish is a bit harsh. The beer does grow on you.

Boutip (5031) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle: Poured an amber color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of coriander, orange peel and paradise grain is quite sublime with light caramel malt notes and some residual sugars. Taste is also dominated by grain of paradise with some orange peel and some light coriander with light caramel malt. Body is about average with good carbonation. I really enjoyed this beer and probably the best I tried from this brewery with great balance between all ingredients.

BOLTZ7555 (2935) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Hazy tangerine pour with an eggshell head that diminishes to a ring. Candied citrus, pepper, coriander, orange zest, yeast, and honey-baked biscuit. Drinkable but not terribly interesting. Solid for the style and non offensive.
