foduck (330) - Denton, Texas, USA - FEB 13, 2012
From draft. Bright orange color with nice head. Aroma is faint spice, dust, yeast. Flavor is kind of complex. Light and smooth but just enough funkiness to make it interesting. Some unfamiliar flavors in here that are difficult to describe. Very drinkable.

AndresTM (321) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - DEC 19, 2014
It pours a slightly hazy deep amber with a frothy off-white head. The aroma is malt loaf, cereal, toffee, citrus (orange peel, lime), grassy hops, and peppery spices. Lovely. The mouthfeel is medium to thin, with restrained carbonation and a slightly watery body. It doesn’t quite help convey the aroma into the taste, so the flavors, especially the sugar-derived ones, are slightly weaker. The taste is moderately bitter and sweet. Citrus lingers, a bit like a lime cilantro pepper rub. he alcohol is only perceived as you’re finishing off the glass. Not too hefty, but very pleasant and tremendously drinkable.

Shared can. Pours hazy amber with thin, fizzy head. Aroma is caramel and bready malts, orange peel, and faint toast. Flavor is bready malt base, light toast, faint caramel, and some light pear and apricot esters. Light body and medium carbonation.

MartinVanBeer (116) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - NOV 26, 2014
I'm a big fan of the style. Amber pour and a small white head. Delicate floral aroma and notes of apples. Toasted nuts and fresh harvest fruit. The flavors last forever. It's good but I wish it was a little more true to style ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light barnyard and fruit on the nose. Getting hints of black licorice - unique in this style of brew. Nice brew and one I’d try again, but won’t seek out.

Surprised by the low ratings. This is solid. Very nice. A little light on the yeast, but has a pleasant sweetness, and very quaffable. I like it.
