Bottle thanks to rayl101. Murky dark orange pour with a small white head. Aroma was big time fruit, a touch of sweet malt, some funk, tart. Grapefruit juice. Flavors were heavy on the bitter grapefruit, tart sourness, lots of bittersweet fruits. Finish was big time blood orange and bitter grapefruit juice. Interesting stuff indeed. Fun brew!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle. Pours orange with almost no head. Aroma is of oranges, pepper, and wheat. Taste is big on acidic blood orange with a very peppery finish. After a few sips, you get even more orange. Finish very dry and peppery. The peppery, acidic taste makes it hard to really enjoy. Not my thing.

Love the color of this beer, looks like a blood orange. Very little head on this guy. Strange beer. The flavors are as described on the label, but not terribly balanced. I really think I like the theory behind this beer more than the beer itself.

2013 edition, on tap at the brewpub. Pours a brownish amber with a white ring. Aroma of blood oranges, malt, wheat, and a hint of peppercorn. Taste is a huge batter between blood oranges and pepper, which ends with peppercorn bitterness. Lingering peppery orange. Very tasty.

Deep red, almost brown clear pour that produced lots of bubbles on te inside of the shaker it was poured into. Half inch orange cream head. Hoppy garlic pepper aroma. Sweet rich flavor. Hoppy, lots of distinctly orange flavor. Alcohol content is evident on the finish as are the peppercorns.

Mahogany pour with ruby highlights and a small, short-lived, off-white head. The aroma is rich, deep and buttery with notes of caramel, toffee, and almonds wrapped in a big, intense orange orange aroma. The aroma also shows some subtle notes of the peppercorns and dark fruit. The flavor is loaded with dark fruit notes and lots of blood orange layered over buttery toffee, pecan, and almond notes. There’s also some hints of brandy, zesty continental hops, fresh peppercorns, and strong fusel alcohol at the end. The body is full and sticky with low carbonation and a strong alcohol warming.

Bottle, pours almost like a soda with vibrant red/brown/orange color and lots of carbonation right off the bat, it quickly dissipates. Lots of wheat and oranges on the nose and a hint of hops. Flavor is something I’ve never tasted before, serious amount of the orange sweetness and a slight bitter bite along with a tiny bit of pepper in there. At room temp I only get a slight alcohol burn. Something dances around on the tongue that is difficult to pin down, maybe the acidity along with the alcohol. In any case an extraordinarily unique beer and enjoyable. Might try again with some age on it.
