On tap; poured an amber-orange color; aroma of lemon, caramel, citrus and honey. Flavor had alot of lemon and honey; a touch of earthy hops in the finish. Some touches of bread and caramel. Somewhat of a hybrid and a good stuff.

portableparty (1908) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Bottle. Pours hazy bright orange with a white soapy head that fades to spotty film. Aroma is grain fruit like oranges and rind and wine corks (wood) with faint caramel. Taste has a good bitterness and dry fruit of oranges and wood and I get faint wine characteristics. Palate is medium and drying with a chalky finish. This is a complex brew. Another bottle down the road may bring me back to this rating. Non the less this is very enjoying and the alcohol is very well hidden.

Bacterial (1204) - 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

vyvvy (3607) - 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.

Dogbrick (7244) - 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.

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.

phaleslu (5875) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 16, 2012
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.

Bottle at a family tasting. Pours golden with some head. Flavor is very unique and sweet. It almost has a honey flavor to it. You can taste a lot of the different ingredients and it is quite complex. Surprisingly good.
