COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The color is deep amber with a light, creamy head. The nose starts off with a touch of citrus but then turns decidedly into peaches. The taste starts off with creamy malt resulting from the pale 2 row and caramel malts and Saint Arnold yeast. The hop bitter starts low then builds to a crescendo, but always maintains a balance even in its big finish. The hop flavor continues to be peaches, an interesting manifestation of the Columbus, Simcoe and Centennial hops. This is the first Divine Reserve that we have filtered. This decision was made to make the hop flavors brighter, plus it would have been a bottling nightmare with all the hop bits in it. This beer is best enjoyed at 45° or even a little warmer. Though the recipe and style indicate this beer to be enjoyed fresh, we expect this beer to develop interestingly over the years.

hopscotch (9843) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 17, 2011
Bottle… Mostly clear, dirty orange ale with a small, creamy, white head. Great retention. The nose is a tropical and citrus fruit medley – pineapple, mango and grapefruit are front-and-center here. Full-bodied with a thin mouthfeel and stinging carbonation. Caramel and toffee malts are rich and flavorful, but they take a back seat to a bounty of fruity, juicy, bitter hops. Finishes grapefruity, bitter, and then dry. Bottle courtesy of BgThang!

Deep gold pour, small white head. Sweet malts blended with a lot of dank/earthy hops. Middle of the road brew.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2015 Nice very hoppy beer, well balanced. Pours golden with a small amount of lace. Neutral aroma. Good balance,the hops are right there and more of a 1.5 ipa. Average mouthfeel,carbonation is right there. Good drinkability. mild citrus taste. Alcohol well hidden.Very slight acid builds up. Bottle in trade. Good again 3 weeks.

Dogbrick (8907) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Sample at Petrol Station in Houston (as Endeavour). Clear dark amber color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Medium to full body with flavors of resinous hops, grainy malt and fruit. The finish is moderately bitter with a piney hops aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

BMan1113VR (7884) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 23, 2011
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a crystal clear light orange body and an aggressively large, tight bubbled, bone hued off-white head. Staying power is good as is the lacing. Aromas of orange, citrus, light butterscotch (uh-oh), bready, a touch of rotten fruit, lightly herbal, some pine notes. Some caramel and bready hints. No alcohol. Clean fermentation. Flavors are on the sweeter side of things (surprisingly nearly a neutral balance!), tea, citrus, some bitterness. Caramel, orange, grapefruit. Very easy drinking, not rough in anyway (by aggressive cohumulone, alcohol or otherwise). I wish it were a bit fresher, but at only 2 and change months old, I am not sure how much better it would be fresh (I have been a touch generous). Creamy, smooth, not harsh in anyway, a touch warming. A hint of vegital hop matter in the finish. Medium bubbles, decently dry. Good beer overall.

rosenbergh (7642) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 18, 2013
Draught at The Chimes, Baton Rouge, LA as Saint Arnold Endeavour.
Clear amber colour. Sweet hops, strawberries... very sweet aroma. Very sweet and bitter hops. Strong bitterness in the flavour. Bitterness stays. Soft carbonation. Warms a lot!

deyholla (7315) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 11, 2011
Big thanks to Kevin for hooking me up with this! Pours a clear deep amber orange with a light tan head that lasts throughout the beer and laces nicely. Aroma has a really nice grapefruit note with a bit of growing pine and a caramel/toffee backing. Flavor has a good amount more of backing sweet grains with some pine hops and just a hint of grapefruit.
