3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle ... Vero Beach “GET YOUR RUDOLPH ON” Throwdown… The appearance is of unfiltered apple cider with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The bouquet is a fruity, spicy mix of apple sauce, coriander, clove, cinnamon, sage and nutmeg. Full-bodied with tickling carbonation. Sweet and spicy; tangy and fruity. Spiced cider-like. Finishes spicy, sweet and tangy. Different. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
My Bottom Line:
Coriander and grains of paradise leap from the glass in this clean and unmemorable brew.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A rapidly diminishing veil of foam crowns the translucent amber.
-Aniseed allusions are also found underneath.
-Mouthfeel is relatively lean.
-This is quite drinkable despite the intensity of the spiciness.
-Blind, you don’t really know if you’re holding a bag of wet spices, a cup of herbal tea, an amped Witbier, etc.
-Hops and malt are only there to support the spices.
-It remains quite useful for many food pairings.

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

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to my secret Santa! Pours a hazy amber orange with a tan head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a decent amount of spice, with a hint of light fruit/flora and backing sweet grain. Flavor has a good amount of grain with a spice backbone and a hint of a light fruit note.
