5/7/2012. 22 oz. bottle. Pours light brown with an off-white head. Malty aromas with dried fruit and spice. Mild on hops, but yet with a good balance. Fruit is showing well and you do get a bit of the alcohol towards the end.

Bottle from broIPA. obviously properly cellared on his window sillfor awhile because this thing is drinking a lot better than any of the previous reviews would have me expect. Pours a nice deep, hazy copper/orange with a bit of persistent, fluffy white head. Aroma of citrus, orange, lemon, grass, sweet malt. Taste is orange, bitter, grassy hops, syrupy sweet malt. Nice booze burn. Easy drinking.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Unique beer. Pours an orange color with a white head, And the most sediment I have ever seen in a non-home brewed beer. Don’t know if we just got the end of the barrel, but it is refreshing to see a beer-maker that is not afraid of sediment. Smells is great, lots of cherries. Almost like a lambic. So you would expect a big of taste, but actually, there isn’t a huge amount of flavor. Very malty, and some booziness, but mostly forgettable. Need to give the brewer credit though to trying something different. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a rather hazy amber color with almost no head and quite a few floaties in it. Nose seems a little sweet with a hint of citrus, actually, and reminds me a lot of a tripel. Taste is also slightly sweet and is exactly what you’d think of from the smell. Not a fan of this one.
