tectactoe (2859) - Michigan, USA - MAR 22, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2015 Bottle: Muddled, burnt orange body with a long-lasting, thick, eggshell colored collar. Aroma is... strange, perplexing. Clover honey, apple, cinnamon potpourri, faint cheap whiskey, nebulous spice, sweet vanilla, & strange notes of beeswax. What the hell is going on here? Taste starts with some contrived, artificial honey sweetness, quickly followed by another hodge podge of favors... Lavender, wheat. sweetbread, vanilla, cereal grains, apple skins, mild graham cracker, booze, Iím not really sure what is going on here. Starts off with mild sweetness but warmth makes it nearly cloying. Hard to figure this one out. Not the worst thing AB-InBev makes, but that doesnít mean itís good.

Fake bourbon and vanilla aroma. Not offensive, but not all that great either. Semi sweet. Still weak and over carbonated body.

dnstone (2301) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 12, 2015
Pours a golden in color. Sweet soda aroma. Tastes like like a floral cream soda.

decaturstevo (5337) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Gold pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma is vanilla and wheat. Sweet honey malt with almost no bitter. A touch of old shoes. Medium body with good carbonation. No bourbon or real bourbon. Ok I guess

Horrible, though it is accurate in that it tastes like honey and bourbon. I couldn't choke it down. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ordybill (394) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - FEB 17, 2015
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.

jmagnus87 (2822) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2015
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.

Bricks (673) - Delaware, USA - JAN 30, 2015
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.

vipinvelp (2538) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - JAN 29, 2015
Opaque orange, no foam. Honey aroma. Honey and caramel in taste, strange mix. Wheat there to. Not a beer to my liking. (Houston 201501)
