3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Same growler as EDA... Poured a hazy orange yellow color with a small off white head. Citrus and lightly spiced aroma. Mouthfeel was a bit weak, I think it may have been an old growler, the flavor was full of citrus, most notably tangerine and apricot. No alcohol at all. Very nice, and I would not have guessed this was a Belgian. I could not find much yeast in this one at all.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Props to Glen for sharing this growler. Cloudy orange color with a smallish off-white head. Aroma is orange citrus with some tangerine, spices and a light maltiness. The taste is medium bodied with some coriander and sweet caramel. Lightly carbonated but that could be more from the growler than anything. Tasty and very drinkable indeed.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium bodied gold with a tightly clustered head. Interesting hop profile...particularly citrusy but not typical, actually itís kind of sweet and reminds me a lot of lime juice. The floral aspect of the hops comes through in the finish and especially in the burp. Nice palatable beer. The malt is light, as the hops are supposed to be the forefront here, but is ample. The high alchohol percentage is concealed very well, between the lime and esters it is almost impossible to pick out.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Found this at Rose & Raindrop in Portland. Medium orange color, clear body with a creamy, fluffy white head. Creamy, sweet bubblegum, orange, peach, apricot flavors and aromas... seems thick at first, but ends a little thin and flavorless... good creamy texture reminds me a lot of Deschutes Jubelale... some residual sweet bubble gum and tangerine flavor, light and fluffy on the tongue. Orange cream flavor throughout.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught @ the brewery. Copper. Strong spices (coriander, curacao, cinnamon) just from the aroma as well as a touch of old, dried hop pellets and caramel. Spices continue on as this is a highly spiced beer. My guesses from the aroma seem to be correct. Fruits, toffee and caramel are evident. A nice beer to try.

I just found this brew on tap at a local bar, it must be the new winter seasonal. Pours a red/amber with a off-white head that leaves moderate lacing on the glass. Lots of spice to this brew, iím not totally sure what the spice was, but my guess would be coriander and cinnamon. Spicy hops gave this brew a nice crisp bite. Taste started malty with hints of toffee and caramel and finished with a nice spiced hop, light bittered finish. A good warming brew that I will have to try again and see if i can get a better discription.
