Decent sized head with light carbonation. Hazy orange in color. Sweet fruity aroma of spiced apples, apricots and floral hops. Very light flavor. Dry and fruity with a slight bitterness. Dry palate which puckers the tongue. I expected more from this.

Got some floaters going on...fine-bubbled head, slowly dimishing, off-white. Aroma vanilla ice cream, slight grassiness, some...figs/dates. Taste: wow diacetyl and acidic bite, some sweetness. Butter toffe/caramel, *barely* dry finish. Okay as a....what is it, anyway? Tastes a bit similar to that buttery O-fest I had a few hours ago.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy, orange amber (quite attractive), good, somewhat loose lacing, fading fast. Aroma of pepper and caramel. I had three flavor impressions, flowing in order with a second or two between each: 1) yeast! 2) bubblegum 3) bitter finish (hello hops)! Quite an interesting beer. Not as deep in flavor as it might have been. (750ml bottle shared by Legion242--thanks!)

Cloudy orange color; Head dissapated quite quickly. Nice malt nose. Resembles the FT in only the famous "biscuit" profilr. Nice effervesence. More malt later in glass. Pepper and malt. Very nice. As it warms, hops raise their hands and say "present".
