minch25 (577) - Medford, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Clear golden orange. Frothy white head. Enticingly fruity aroma, peach, apricot. Fruity apricot is in the flavor and aftertaste also. Slightly prickly. Quite nice, but their bitter blows this out of the water.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 13, 2009
Candied orange peel to the nose with just a touch of clove type spice. There is something almost watermelon-like here too. Sweet and vibrant on the palate with a bulging, smooth texture and rich decadence. This beer contains far more than one would expect from looking at it.
