3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reddish pink clear pour with no head. Smells like apple juice and a bit of bourbon, pineapple and oak. Combination is similar to smelling canned fruit cocktail.. Flat carbonation, sour dry finish. Flavor is syrupy canned fruits with some spices: pineapple and fruit cocktail, cinnamon, oak, nuts, booze, caramel-y bourbon. Not my favorite from them, good by most standards.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Radiant golden body with a small head. Huge booze aroma with pineapple, oak, melon. Instantly cloying. Overpowering alcohol heat. Hard to endure more than a few sips. Bottle could easily be shared 20 ways. Yikes.

Reddish brown pour, sudsy head. Aroma of pineapple, cherries, and orange peel. Taste is belgian yeast, tart fruit, and a hint of vanilla. Cloying but hides the booze very well.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared bottle. Pours a cloudy golden orange with a nice off-white head. Aroma of malt, bourbon, fruit, and spice. Taste is fruit, spice, bourbon, malt, caramel, and some vanilla. A lot going on here, but it works for the most part.

Thanks, Abraham! What a refined, refreshing beer, so well put together in its stark minimalism! Such finesse! Oh wait, sorry - wrong beer. Clear golden amber with a thin, white head that falls off leaving no lacing, this beer has long lasting legs. The nose is a heavy, boozy, sweet blend of vanilla, bourbon and coconut , along with spicy alcohol, fresh green cardamom, sweet syrup and mild pineapple. Medicinal booziness, which actually works because I am fighting a cold. Palate opens with a big, sweet, boozy, messy blend of coconut, bourbon, vanilla and simple syrup; dates and toffee are also present. The mod palate has a stale, canned pineapple character, along with cardamom. Most definitely a chore, this beer has a long, messy finish with cheap booze and some spice. Meh.

Tap at Gingerman. nose is super bourbon and vanilla. Tastes of vanilla through the ying yang and so much bourbon sweetness, if you dig through those two overpowering flavors you may find some canned fruit cocktail, malt, and lemon. Way sweet and boozy. Bit heavy handed.
