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.

Senap (360) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 18, 2014
Vetefruktig och smakrik. Ingen beska alls. En lättsam sällskaps öl för en ljummen försommarkväll.

Fearium (4) - - MAY 30, 2014 does not count
Grumlig bärnstensfärgad med ett tjockt, vitt skum. Bra sötma i doften, apelsinskal och kola. Väldigt söt i smaken, har toner av en ale men sötma som en veteöl. Blir en konstig mix som dock funkar bra i mitt tycke. Nästintill noll beska i eftersmaken, den smyger sig på ganska sen efter en klunk och påminner mycket om apelsinskal. "Örtig", antagligen tack vara koriandern som varit med att krydda denna. Ger ett slags sting i den överväldigande sötman. Väldigt intressant öl som skiljer sig lite från mängden, både i utseende och smak!

hopscotch (9163) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 22, 2010
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.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2012
Tap. Pours an orange color with a white head. Aroma is of spices like coriander, some orange peel, pepper, some sweet malt and lighter fruits. The aroma follows the nose I get the coriander, orange peel and pepper, sweet malt and lighter fruits like pear. The body is medium with a dry mouth feel. Overall a pretty tasty brew.

On tap at the brewery. Pours with a hazy bronze body with a small off-white head. Aroma of lavender, perfume, potpourri. Very aromatic. Flavors are pretty strong. Coriander, lavender, rose hips, grains of paradise. Very floral and spicy. Maybe too spicy.
