Thanks to daknole. Bottle pours amber with a khaki head. Aroma shows notes of caramel, strawberry, oak, and light citrus. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of vanilla, toffee and sage. Overall body is moderate, soft, and finishes lightly bitter. Extremely well balanced and interesting.

Lightly cloudy reddish pour, big huge puffy off white head. Citrus aroma hits first, followed by some spices, light toothpick notes, unripe apricot, and some caramel. Flavor has some carraway notes, caramel, citrus peel, sawdust, resin, golden raisins. Not bad at all.

750ml – From a Friend
Big reddish brown color, hazy with a tan head. This was sweet and with lots of yeasty aroma. Light barrel flavors this also brought out some sweet candy sugar flavors and fruit like qualities. Lots of vanilla in the flavor and finish which was very dry. A very nice beer.

Shared at Pre Sex. This beer was candy for me, delicious candy. Pours a light clean red with a mild chill haze and a wispy sandstone tan head. Nose is extremely floral and ephemeral with a wonderful candylike sweetness. Grapefruit zest and brown sugar....Flavor is extremely floral with a definitive rose character and notes of citrus rind, caramel, and vanilla. Light spicy palate. Me rikey.

Bottle; Pour is cloudy dark amber - HUGE frothy beige head with nice retention and spotty lacing. Vanilla forward on the nose; oak and a spice note as well. Caramel malts, big vanilla bean flavor profile, nice oak element, and an amazing juicy citrus hop consisting of oranges and tangerines. Slightly sweet, slightly bitter and fantastic all around.

Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours reddish brown with a huge beige head and a hoppy citrus aroma. There is a fruity red ale flavor with a grapefruit finish. A unique brew.

Capped 750 from Beverages 4 Less in Santee.nPours clear dark ruddy copper with a 3 finger creamy off-white head. Aroma is very citrusy/grapefruity/hoppy. Flavor has a lot of oak, some mild roast malt, and a very great deal of citrus/grapefruit rind. Very nice.

750 ml bottle, courtesy hopscotch. This one pours a hazy, dark reddish orange color and topped by a tall, thick head of khaki colored foam that slowly recedes to a thin, lasting film that leaves patches of lace all around the glass. The aroma shows bright orange citrus and grapefruit hops followed by a sweet caramel malt base and some toasted oak and vanilla. The flavors follows the same lines with rich caramel and toasted grains beneath the bright orange and grapefruit citrus hop bitterness. There is a touch of oaky vanilla on the back end that smooths things out. Medium bodied and smooth on the mouthfeel with moderate carbonation that leads to a dry, semi bitter finish. This is tasty stuff right now, but I could see this falling off pretty quickly.

Bottle… Tampa “Farewell to Sebletitje” Tasting… Cloudy burnt-orange ale with a small, wispy, off-white head. Excellent retention. The hopped up bouquet presents loads of citrus fruit and pine alongside more subtle nuances of toffee, raw oak, sugar cookie and vanilla. A hint vegetal and herbal. Medium to full-bodied with airy carbonation. The flavor is very hoppy, but decently balanced by a caramel and toffee undertone. Short, crisp, refreshing beer. Tastes like just a really nice, hopped-up session beer. I’m surprised to see the abv is nearly 7%. Well done! Bottle courtesy of giarcsr. Thanks, Ryan!
