3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours copper / golden with a white head. The aroma is a bit sweet and doesnít show the high abv. Donít know if its from reading the bottle, but I taste the green chilis and some oak. The different grains arenít as easy to pick out, but there is a bit maltiness to it. Donít notice the prickly pear on the aroma. Really nice. Full body with lots of frothy carbonation. The flavor starts with honey, cotton candy, spicy chilis, light comes and a good deal of complexity. Iím sure some of the complexity comes from things Iím not used to having in beer like corn and wild rice. There are some spicy hops on the finish. Overall an interesting and pleasant beer.

750 c&c from Wine and Cheese in Clayton, MO. Fortunately a store thatís in the "Footprint". Pours hazy orange/amber with a creamy beige head. Lots of things in the nose. I can differentiate fruit, oak and pepper. Med + body. Flavor is fairly peppery. Thereís some oak. Itís dry and astringent. The honey is almost missing. Think I might get a little grape. But prickly pear? Maybe thatís a fruit thing. There is fruit. A little different - seems a bit earthy - Iíd put this into the saison/bier de garde territory. Iím likiní it.

750 brought back from Nebraska by my wife. Slight sugary sweet taste. Honey is pretty dominant. Pineapple. Citrus. Not in nose but in body. Behind that sweetness the slight taste/heat of chili pepper. Nice beer.

Dry, well-balanced. A lot of favors. Peppers? Blended ale. Is this 75 characters yet?

Aroma of pineapple and banana. Taste nothing like the nose, instead the honey dominates, along with oak. Truly unique and quite nice.

750 ml bottle from BevMo - Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a large off white head that took its sweet ass lime to settle. Aroma is fruit and and light hops. Flavor is lightly sweetened with hints of fruit, honey, and wood. Medium to full body. Alcohol is fairly well hidden. A nice beer.
