Horrible, though it is accurate in that it tastes like honey and bourbon. I couldn't choke it down.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a 12 LOZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a very sweet smell with citrus trappings with grain and malt thrown in.
Appearance- This is a murky orange with transitions to more of a yellow color at the bottom of the glass. At first I thought it was the glass, but I think itís the beer
Taste- Whoa, not for me! There is a slight bourbon flavor (tat I not good) and I didnít find this very drinkable
Palate- I think this is a moderate bodied beer with medium carbonation and a oily feel to it.
Overall- This was not good at all in my opinion. The flavor was downright bad and the texture didnít compliment the experience. I will not drink this again, even if it was free.

The aroma is sweet with artificial honey. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall not gross but very fake.

Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a hazy dark orange with a half finger of white head. Aroma of some dark honey and a hint of bourbon. Taste follows aroma. Light sweet and very watery. Meh, not even great for what is is.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Carbonated, hazy honey brown appearance. Smells like clean hops w/ a touch of malt and honey. Taste is good.. a citrusy wit, with a bit of honey sweetness. Itís good. A bit fizzy on mouthfeel.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Opaque orange, no foam. Honey aroma. Honey and caramel in taste, strange mix. Wheat there to. Not a beer to my liking. (Houston 201501)

I wanted to like this one more than I did, so I was disappointed. I had some at a beer festival and had made a note that I thought it was good. Apparently my judgement was impaired by that time. Itís not like I remembered. It tastes weak and artificial compared to other barrel aged beers. Perhaps itís the type of honey they used. It tastes like they used basswood honey. Clover honey would be more expensive, but would have given it a better flavor. That might have been enough to give it a bit of a chemical taste. It goes flat pretty quickly. The color is a unique orange-ish gold. There is some haze/cloudiness. I appreciate that they tried to do something interesting in the making of this beer, but I think they fell short in comparison to other beers in this style.

This beer smells bad, goes down bad and has a bad aftertaste that lingers much too long. In a word, this beer is GROSS! For me personally, itís sacrilegious to waste beer, itís something i just donít do.I gave this beer a chance and drank my first one, however my second beer only lasted a few sips before I tossed it down the drain. Itís the first time I actually felt good about throwing beer away. This recipe needs to be burned!!
