An interesting blend, this beer is a solid but doesn’t offer anything to stand out. I am not sure it was worth the 12.99 I paid for it but was complex enough that I gave it a long consideration throughout the bomber.

swanmann (568) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - APR 7, 2013
Clear honey, copper color with small off-white head. Aroma of honey, caramel, orange, pine, and damp hay. Tastes like honey with a touch of bitterness and twang. It’s warm and just a little spicy, can detect the oak woodiness. It’s just a little bit syrupy with adequate but fairly soft carbonation. On the sweeter side, definitely, but well tempered. It’s unique for sure. Complex and probably a bit beyond description. It’s sweet, slightly bitter and a little metallic/ astringent. I really like it. It’s unlike any brew I’ve had.

HomeBrewHawk (464) - De Soto, Kansas, USA - APR 22, 2012
750ml corked and caged bottle served in a Tank 7 tulip. Bottle conditioned. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a big white head. Citrus hops and a little oak in the aroma. Lots of carbonation. Fair amount of hop bitterness. Lighter side of medium bodied. Dry finish. I didn’t pick up a lot of the ingredients. Wheat and hops come through the most. Wouldn’t go out of my way to buy this again.

brokephibroke (272) - Mead, Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Aroma of pineapple and banana. Taste nothing like the nose, instead the honey dominates, along with oak. Truly unique and quite nice.

bpr77 (264) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Pours an orange hazy color. Aroma is hoppy citrus and malts almost like an ipa is what i am anticipating. Whoa, flavor is way different sweet at first getting pinneapple and candy and then apircots and vanilla earthy tones with some spicey heat notes that finishes clean what an interesting beer ! Really exceptional from a flavor and taste dynamic

FURLYSURIOUS (263) - Orono, Minnesota, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Pours a pure honey gold with an expanding off white head. Abundant, consistent beading. Smells complex - spicy, the pear dominates. Very fresh. The taste is again defined by the prickly pear. Really a nice balance of what could have been a mess of a beer. Refreshing, approachable, delicious. Well done.

MadDogMD (213) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Taster at AZ SBF. Medium golden color, average carbonation. Smooth, some light fruits, malt sweetness, slightly bitter finish. Nothing stood out. Good beer, but forgettable.

stumpyiliz (212) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 23, 2012
Pours a hazy yellow/amber, smells are all over the place from fruity ester to the prickly pear. Light hops are on the front of the taste with a full body spice bite afterwards. The barrel aging accents come through with the finish. This beer lingers for some time on the palate. A solid beer, good sipper and the booze is hidden well. Great concept, I imagine this will age well for years and give off other attributes due to the multiple barrel aging additions to the blend.

jbardin (161) - New York, USA - JUN 26, 2012
Bottle from bird of paradise in Albuquerque. An interesting idea--ingredients from all the different locations they distribute to. Tastes like a hoppy tripel, like gnomegang. Green chiles also show up a bit. Complex, but not that complex. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bellco33 (160) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Poured from bottle into tulip: pours clear golden with a thin head. Aroma is boozy, sweet, and a little funky. Taste has a lot going on. A little sweet, boozy, nutty, and a little bitter. Slightly astringent, medium body. Not bad.
