750 ml bottle from Randall’s. Fun concept. Pours a cloudy, lighter yellow-gold color with an initial finger of cream-colored head that settles into a film and ring. Aroma of oak, fruity funk (pears), wheat, sweet malts, sugar, and a little hint of warming alcohol. The flavor presents the same slate of notes, with wheat, pears, oak, funk, sweet malts, and even some mild spice, perhaps from the peppers. Couldn’t pick out some of the other ingredients, like corn, wild rice, and honey. Medium-bodied, with a funky, sweet mouthfeel - a bit muddled - and moderate carbonation. Great idea for a beer, and I’d be interested to try a different blend because the execution of this one wasn’t quite up to expectations based on my reading of the label.

750 ml thanks to Craig. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. A nice hoppy aroma of fruit, mostly oranges. A sweet dry flavor of honey and wheat, loads of citrus hops, very smooth and easygoing. Good.

Slightly hazy gold with a good sized rocky head. Nice complex aroma of sweet pale malts, honey, floral + herbal hoppiness, subtle spicy rye, some apricot, and a bit of oak. Charming mouthfeel, with nice balance and complexities. Starts kinda cereal like and sweet malty, but quickly gathers tones of slightly sour’d oak, a little wheat, some pepperiness, some slight herbal tones, oak, and a pleasant and balancing bitterness on the finish accompanied with some alcoholic warmth. Essentially a nuanced imperial blonde ale. Didn’t knock my socks off, but it is a friggin cool idea, and pretty well executed.

Strykzone (5900) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Sampled at an esbls tasting. Lightly hazed golden with a white head. A sweet grainy honey nose. An interesting flavor profile. Wheat, cloves, honey, soft hops. Interesting.

notalush (5514) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Mostly clear gold - a fairly straightforward, clean and moderately sweet DIPA - flavors of vanilla and earthy hops, with a bit of coconut and a cool, minty character from the hops - very well-hidden alcohol - lingering vanilla - not bad - not sure what makes it worth 14 bucks a bottle.

drfabulous (5232) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAY 8, 2012
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.

vyvvy (5015) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Pours copper / golden with a white head. The aroma is a bit sweet and doesn’t show the high abv. Don’t know if its from reading the bottle, but I taste the green chilis and some oak. The different grains aren’t as easy to pick out, but there is a bit maltiness to it. Don’t 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. I’m sure some of the complexity comes from things I’m 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.
