2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2010 Re-rate 8/8/10: Bottle. Bottle. Hazy orange color with a white head. Spicy aroma with fruits (some citrus), coriander, caramel malt and alcohol. Very sweet flavor with malt, caramel, honey, a bit of wheat, yeasty notes and big spiciness, getting bigger and harder on the tongue towards the drier, hot alcoholic finish. Full-bodied, syrupy and sticky. Drinkabilty slightly increases as the beer gets warmer. Too sweet, too spicy, too alcoholic, too much. The previous rating was very rushed, I’m glad I tried it again and gave it a more proper rating. 6/3/5/2/10=2.6
Bottle sample during Beerfest in Tel Aviv. Amber color. Aroma of oranges, malt, a bit of alcohol, some more fruits and light spiciness. Sweetish fruity and spicy flavor with some yeasty hints and caramelly and bready malt. Medium-bodied. Not too wheaty overall. 6/3/7/3/13=3.2

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2009 What the hell is with this beer? A sweet mess. Pours an apricot/light brown color wtih a white head. Aroma is full of banana, spices, malt, honey, sugar and oranges. The flavor is pretty insane on the sweetness. I was not impressed. Lots of sugar, honey, syrup, dried fruit. I need to try this again in a regular beer setting instead of a crazy beer fest. Interesting but way too sweet.
