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

marcus (6785) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 26, 2013

arminjewell (6434) - Hastings, Minnesota, 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.

"A nice spicy saison style brew...one of their tastier brews, though it still seems to be lacking focus. the kaffir lime leaf version of this brew was pretty nice."

b3shine (5850) - Indiana, USA - MAY 29, 2013
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.
