Sampled from a bomber at the end of the evening shared by an great guy at RRVF2013. Pours a clear golden hue with a ring of offwhite head. Primary notes of honeysuckle, and grass. But it also had a distinct aroma note that is identical to the way that Oscar the Grouch smelled in the Seasame Street Scratch-n-Sniff picture book I had when I was 6 years old. Funny, the things you remember from childhood... Anyways, the beer was quite tasty, but hearing the tragic story behind it is even more moving. My thoughts go out to the families.

Bottle shared by mean B3C. Poured clear golden color with a large frothy off-white head that was lasting with good lacing. Medium to heavy complex hop and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy blalanced bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet candy finish of moderate duration. Solid complex drinkable beer.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2011 Just read up a little on Britteny Fox Watts. Sad story; nice gesture by Terrapin and Heavy Seas. The beer pours a murky orange-gold color with a modest off-white head on top. The aroma shows a tropical peach scent, a bit of a wild character, flowers, lavender, vanilla, and yeast. It smells pretty good but it gave me the thought that this might be a bit on the heavy and cloying side. Not the case. It’s a bit more crisp than I thought it would be and easy going down. There’s plenty of tropical fruit sweetness but the addition of a light spice and dry herbal notes do a pretty good job of offsetting that. Some orange peel too. There’s a touch of funky yeast but this isn’t very funky at all. Honestly, even one percent higher abv and I’m not sure I would have liked this that much. But as is, everything glides along nicely. Good beer. Kudos to the brewers.

Hazy golden and orange color with ivory sheen. Dusty pale malt, spicy hop, light berry fruit aromas. Smooth mouthfeel. Nice herbal, spicy coriander flavors with dusty pale malt, and a light berry sweetness--tasty saison.
