A Sillier rendition of our Simcoe Silly. Made with wildflower honey, more malt and yes more Simcoe hops

12 oz. bottle, pours a hazy amber orange with a small white head. Aroma is very Belgian-esque, with Belgian yeast upfront, candied sugar, and fairly prominent honey. Flavour brings a mesh of honey, candied sugar and Belgian yeast upfront, with all these qualities fighting each other for the front position. There is a soft doughy malt in there as well and some alcohol notes, though quite well-hidden for 11+%. Not really much hint of the hops. A little amateurish tasting - the various flavours could be better integrated. All in all, still a decent American take on a Belgian strong, but flawed.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2013 2012 bottle. Drink cold. There is a nice lacing of foam in my glass. The scent is rather nice and inviting with a subtle spice aroma. I picked up on the hops, mango, and pineapple. The fruit and hops stand out the most. It describes to have a bubblegum scent on the bottle and the drink does surprisingly. As for the flavor I noticed sweet yeast, tasty fruits of mango and pineapple, hops, and very minimal malts. This drink is not too harsh on the palate for its 11% abv. It left a hint of a dryness, yeast, pineapple, and a slight alcohol taste in the mouth. Overall a very well done beverage.

Big orange citrus taste up front. Very good orange aroma. Cushioned mouthfeel. Yeast in the finish. Very good for style. Could also pass as a Belgian IPA. Dangerously drinkable at this alcohol level.Thanks for sharing Josh.

Beautifully zesty. Pours orange copper, not much head. Some lacing, medium carbonation. Medium consistency. Some citrus, floral hops. Tangy taste with sweetness and some sourness. Well-balanced with a great punch. Bottle from brewpub.

12oz Bottle. Thanks Sean for the opportunity! To be completely honest the aroma smells painful, a bedraggled mix of stressed Belgian yeast, raw pink bubblegum, and slightly old hops. The palate of the beer cleans things up ever so slightly, but holding onto the bubblegum yeast stress. The sugars crank up, giving a crystalline punch to the front of the tongue. I think a whole one of these would cause a lot of pain in the morning, with a lot of sugar, a lot of alcohol, and a boatload of messy phenols. The obviously stressed and freaked out Belgian yeast byproducts are really tough to handle. Did it ferment at 102F? Otherwise, for the gravity, it really isn’t too sweet.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2013 Bottle from Winter Solstice. Pours a mostly clear bright orange color with a hint of ruby. Very small head that quickly fades. Big aroma of bubblegum, pine, sweet honey, and citrus. Taste is a somewhat odd mix of bubblegum, honey and pine. A tad on the sweet side, I think there’s too much honey added here and it doesn’t complement the pine hops well. Finish has a lingering bubblegum taste. Very slight alcohol burn is nice for this abv. Decent but I prefer the regular Simcoe Silly.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2013 Bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.; thanks mikem409). Looks solid; a transparent burnt-orange with white lacing. Smells of floral and pine hops and dough with a semi-sweet, slightly boozy backbone. Notes of honey too. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A decent example of the style.

Bottle. The pour is a bright vibrant orange. The aroma is strong, could smell it as I was pouring. Tons of floral notes in the nose, very interesting. The taste has a lot of pine in it and super hoppy. A little too overpowering for my likes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Big and sweet one here. Coudl use more hops. Hops are vegetal to start however then they mellow out into some mine pine and fruit.
