750 ml. corked and caged bottle. Served at cellar temperature. Pours an enormous white head, with extensive lacing, over a very effervescent, slightly hazy gold (SRM 6) body.....nose is pine, light citrus, apple, pear...taste is light sweet, with touches of pepper, light fruits including pear, apple, finishing slightly sweet but with attendant phenolic spice bitterness....mouth feel medium to light, alcohol hidden, carbonation very high with continuing frothy head. Although this has been created with a melange of ingredients from a wide geographic area, it works. What has been created ends up being a Belgian Golden Strong Ale. It meets the BJCP criteria of that style almost to a "T". While this style is not the best of the Belgians, it still is more interesting than "Specialty Grain" as a title. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

Awkwardly sweet and muddled beer with some fruit and caramel and other flavors that I cant place. Finishes fruity and perfumey sweet. Odd and kinda boozy.

Courtesy my Secret Santa. Thanks man! Meh...this was a sweet cloying mess. Aroma was huge but a little muddled. Strong honey, vanilla and oak. Pour was a flat cloudy medium gold with no head. Taste was way too sweet and muddled. Honey was the main flavor with the oak and vanilla tanins providing the only other strong flavors. As it warmed, the light fruit (pear and apple) came out but just muddied the waters. There is a slight white wine aftertaste. What really hurt this beer was a lack of carbonation. Being completely flat really hurt. If you look in the ingredients you can see they just threw too much into this beer.

Damico (3137) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2012
Pours amber orange with a white head. The aroma is light citrus zest with some viney hops. The flavors of orange citrus hops with some sweet and tang notes on a medium body.

BOLTZ7555 (3014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Sampled at the AZ Strong Beer Fest. Great concept, slightly better than average beer. Aroma of honey, toffee, and dark fruit. Definitely get the prickly pear in the flavor accompanied by caramel, vanilla, and citrus. Wish the chili and oak was more prominent. Medium bodied.

cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - APR 29, 2012
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.

unclemike (2868) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Poured a medium reddish-amber color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of toasted rye, caramel, citrus and some fruity. Tastes of toasted rye, caramel, and citrus

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Pours a hazy dark blood orange color with tangerine edges and a 2.5 finger frothy white head that has excellent retention, only slowly fading into a lasting cap. Streaks and chunks of soapy lacing left behind. Complex aroma with earthy and citrus hops, light fruit, pine needle, alcohol, oak barrel and spicy peppers. Toasted oak at first with hop oils and resinous pine notes. Slight chalky pepper presence with light fruit, citrus zest, pepper, damp wood and bready yeast. Medium bodied with dry oak and sticky hop bitterness that lingers throughout. Earthy and resinous pine needle flavor with citrus fruit, pale malts, biscuit, caramel, dry oak and a subtle boozy barrel character. Slight dryness but sweet alcohol and fruit notes balance things out. Pepper presence lingers in the finish but isn’t noticeable otherwise. Decent but doesn’t really stand out other than having a strange combo of flavors.

Gription79 (2794) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUL 10, 2012
Poured from a 750ml bottle. I found this to have fruity notes. There is a slight tartness, some grain, lots of tropical fruitiness. Very interesting.

Bacterial (2775) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - MAR 16, 2012
Nose is fruity, a touch of citrus with some subtle vegetable notes. Deep golden color, almost no lacing and a thin white head. Taste is complex, starting with citrus, honey and then hoppy with a nice bitterness. Quite interesting! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
