brokensail (14042) - San Leandro, California, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Golden orange with a soapy white head. Grass, orange peel, banana, and peach. A touch of wine and oak, lightly tart, and some sweet bready malt. The flavor is kind of all over the place, too. A light tartness, some sweet bread, citrus, and lots of fruit. Grass, peach, and floral notes. Not bad, but kind of odd. At least it’s better than a lot of the other kitchen sink beers.

bhensonb (12952) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 8, 2012
750 c&c from Wine and Cheese in Clayton, MO. Fortunately a store that’s 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. There’s some oak. It’s dry and astringent. The honey is almost missing. Think I might get a little grape. But prickly pear? Maybe that’s a fruit thing. There is fruit. A little different - seems a bit earthy - I’d put this into the saison/bier de garde territory. I’m likin’ it.

Ratman197 (11766) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2012
750 ml corked and aged bottle poured a hazy tarnished gold with a lasting off white head. Aroma of straw, citrus, oak, pear, yeast and light spice. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of straw, citrus, vanilla, oak, light earthiness, light chilies and light yeast with a smootj lingering citrus finish.

BeerandBlues2 (11054) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 22, 2012
750 mL bottle. Pours lightly hazy and sparkling copper with a huge, fluffy white head, long retention with fair lacing. Aroma is earthy, herbal, and spicy hops, straw, meal, and biscuit malts, faint pepper and honey notes with light fruity esters. Flavor is spicy peppers, medium hops and bitterness, light alcohol, oak, fairly significant malt backbone and a dry, spicy finish. Full body, medium to high warmth, moderate carbonation.

daknole (10350) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Honey colored pour, light head. Aroma is loaded with great malty notes, wheat, honey, funky fruit the background. Nice malty flavor, honey, sweet wheat notes, corn, oak notes. Pretty cool beer all the way around.

adnielsen (10199) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 1, 2012
Tap @ Odell. Golden appearance with a white head. Somewhat toasty malty, lemon citrusy, light honey aroma. A bit spicy, moderate honey, sweet malty, somewhat light bodied flavor. Kind of a weird combination of flavors. I got a touch of the peppers but not a whole lot.

Dogbrick (10001) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Sample at the Central OH BA Tasting at From The Vine on 06/02/2012: This beer is a hazy amber-copper color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, tropical fruit and oak. Medium-bodied with flavors of pineapple and citrusy hops plus some grainy malt and a touch of sweet honey. The finish is sweet and malty with a lingering fruity aftertaste. Above average overall.

Ferris (8940) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 23, 2014
Draft - Sweet and light citrus, candy like. Clear gold with a rich beige head. Earthy, herb and very dry. Bitterness throughout, wish it was as good as the smell.

arminjewell (8842) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 16, 2012
Pour out of bottle at the brewery, hazy orange pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of slight biscuit, some citrus and fruit notes with a hint of esters, some slight honey and a hint of oak. Messy. Taste is decent but nondeScript, some slight biscuit, bready notes, touch of sweet honey, esters in there, touch of oak and a slight hint of chili, very misplaced. Overall a messy beer but nothing really wrong with it.

3fourths (8798) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 9, 2012
draft. muddy / cloudy orange. sweet honey and bitter hop oil throughout. highly bitter and highly sweet. tastes like bitters and corn syrup mixed with orange juice. think toothpaste and orange juice. ugh.
