3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled on 9/24/2011. This spiced beer pours a medium orange gold color from a 750ml bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head, with good lacing and nice retention. Aroma is fruity and sweet, with some orange peel and other spiciness. A medium bodied spiced beer. The malts are fruity and sweet, orange and orange peel. The hops are earthy and spicy. Decent carbonation. Nice spiciness. The orange peel is very evident, there even seems to be a little bit of the orange oiliness going on as well. Hints of coriander and grain of paradise as well. Starts kind of sweet and finishes kind of dry and somewhat spicy. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet and spicy.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
