COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ale brewed with Spices: Coriander, Cardamon, Mace, Grains of Paradise, Sweet Orange Peel. Adoration is a traditional winter ale, brewed in the Belgian manner, but with the twist of unusual spicing. Sip it on a winter eve sitting before a fire. You’ll understand why we couldn’t name it anything else.

Jsawyer (297) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2010
Bottle: nice ruby body with a thick tan head that quickly faded. Aroma had a sweet fruitiness of dark cherries and figs, sugary phenolics, orange peel, mace, coriander, and slightly woody. Flavor started off briefly reminiscent of vanilla then went right into the spices, fruity fig, pleasant yeasty-bready phenolics, which meld into a pleasant warming woody-burn, all rounded out by a subtle bittersweet lingering finish. Palate was full bodied yet well attenuated, efferevescent and spicy with a warming edge. Very well crafted beer however the cornucopia of spices is somewhat dizzying on the palate and perhaps a little refinement couldn’t hurt in that regard.

jsquire (3479) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JAN 13, 2010
Amber beer with a short lived beige head. Big Belgian sugar nose with noticable alcohol. Corriader, spice, dark fruit, and alcohol flavors all with the caramel and almost burnt dark sugars. All the flavors blend to make this a nice enough winter warmer.

Ughsmash (7147) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 7, 2010
750mL bottle. Poured hazy, deeper amber with a couple fingers worth of beige head. The aroma was majorly spicy with coriander, grains of paradise, and the sweet orange peel leading.. warm malty base of caramel and darker fruits.. bright banana-ey yeast topped it off.. I dug it, but it was a bit of a spice bomb. The flavor found caramel, molasses, and some dark fruits at the core, with the same hefty array of spices around (coriander, orange peel, and white pepper led this time).. spicy and rather hot on the long finish. Medium-plus bodied with above average carbonation on the palate.. the balance was skewed a bit too far toward the spices.. hot and a bit sharp. This was certainly solid, but they overdid it with the spices.
