Bottle @ home, picked up at Supermarket Liquor Fort Collins. Pours a murky, bright orange appearance with a tan head. Somewhat peppery, spicy yeasty, banana, lemon, orange, fairly dry aroma. Somewhat chewy, orange cookie, a touch oxidized, caramel, lightly spicy flavor. A bit twangy. Disappointing.

12oz corked bottle into snifter glass, cloudy darkish-orange golden color with off-white head. Aroma of spices (clove, pepper, sage, coriander) and light citrus (orange, banana). Taste adds notes of candy sugar, wheat, caramel, more orange peel, some lemon, straw and white pepper. Medium body, moderate carbonation, effervescent, dry with slight peppery spiced finish. Hits a nice balance of fruit, spice, tart and sour notes. Good saison.
