On tap at 10 East. A really nice beer, but super sweet. Like drinkin vanilla frosting in a glass sprinkled with cinnamon. Aroma is cinnamon, light honey, and bread pudding. Flavor has some light spice, strong vanilla frosting, more bread/rice pudding and sugar. Definitely an interesting beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark golden color and eggshell head. Aroma is more vanilla and some cinnamon. Taste is sweet with a faint hint of bitterness. This does taste a bit like horchata although the alcohol is pretty noticeable. Mouthfeel is creamy and milky. Not a beer I want to drink a lot of, but its a pretty cool attempt.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
750-ml bottle. Light golden color and very effervescent. The nose is reminiscent of cinnamon frosting, with spices and lactose sweetness filling the nostrils. The taste is pretty darn close to a horchata with light cinnamon, cream, vanilla, brown sugar, caramel malt, and some hot spiciness. Light body with a milky palate. It’s a bit too sweet and odd to drink on a regular basis, but kudos to the Bruery for hitting the mark on a horchata-inspired brew.

Bottle at Matt’s with friends. Pour is hazy orange with a big white head great lacing. Big butter bomb - vanilla, goopy, lactose, caramel corn, and doughy aroma. Taste is marshmallows, green peppers, doughy, sweet vanilla frosting, husky, straw, and spruce tips. Light body with high carbonation. Really horrid shit.
