Darker orange - light brown pour. Aroma is flowery honey, sweet fruit, and some yeast. Flavor is the same, a little lemony, sugary, and some earthiness that is a little unpleasant. It tasted better as it warmed. Interesting beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle shared with Teege up at Redlight. This pours a hazy reddish brown color topped by a small, bubble beige colored head of foam that leaves some sudsy wash behind on the glass. The aroma shows notes of wildflowers, hibiscus, dark berries, and a spicy belgian yeast. Candied sugar, dark fruits, and bread comprise the malt base. The flavor follows with the dark fruits and bready malt to go with the spices of the belgian yeast, pepper, berries, and lots of flowers. The flowers really add a nice twist to everything along with the spicy hops on the finish. Medium bodied with balanced carbonation and a clean, dry finish. This one was a long time in coming and it was a solid beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle. The pour yields a dark, stratified body that ranges from reddish-orange to a muddled, sandy-brown. A small head of beige, bubbly foam leaves behind a wet, soapy wash that mostly rejoins the body below. The nose displays a wide range of components, from brown candy, candied fig and dark bread in the malt base, to notes of spicy Belgian yeast, ginger, wildflowers, and apricots. Flavors are similar, showing the dark, bready malt and clean grain in the background, with a spice profile that included ginger, orange peel, pepper, and loads of flowers. Though nothing really offends, things seem a bit overly busy and lacking in focus. The palate is medium-plus in stature, pretty dry, and balanced in terms of carbonation. Peppery hops and wildflowers show on the fairly clean finish. Good brew.

hazy copper, dense beige head, ^co2, creamy full body.
aroma: caramel malt, straw, stale hops.
taste: yeasty/bready T1; ^floral, fruity esters, acidity T2; caramelized sugar, stale hops, alchl warmth T3.
the floral complexity makes for interesting pairings. i had this with some smoked ribs and it was perfect. the fruitiness and floral character really latched onto to sweetness of the sauce and complimented the pork, while the high carbonation cut through the heaviness.

750mL courtesy of Travlr via SeaBass. Pours a dirty/hazy orange with a thin beige head that has big bubbles/little retention/no lace. Sweet, musty, stale fruit aroma. Taste is boozy, spicy, dry, a little weird. Not much wild character.
