Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Poured a nice clear dark gold with a small frothy white head. Strong syrupy blonde with a pleasant dryness in the finish. Full body. Wildflower honey. Rich orange marmalade. Very well blended. Extraordinary actually. Quite impressed. I appreciate how difficult it is to get a beer to read like this. Should be rated higher.

By the taste, I’d never guess that this beer is 16% ABV. The taste is very light, with a good banana/peach overtone. Almost like a Hefeweizen, without the clove or citrus. Amazing!

Pours a very clean golden color with a very low, filmy white head. Aroma has a very strong apple, bubble gum, light peach and finishes with a lot of clove but it fits with the other flavors present. Flavor has a lot of clove early, moves into a light alcoholic flavor but not at all overpowering, Modest amount of peach and apple provide enough sweetness to balance out the clove and alcohol present. Body is surprisingly hefty for a 16% brew. Beer has very fine, low carbonation that aids in the body. Overall a very tasty beer! Nose is one of the more balanced for this strong of alcohol. The alcohol is just a tad on the high side for the flavor but I would not of expected it to be this high. Great beer is always signified by me continually going back to pour an empty bottle.

22oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear dark gold with minimal head. Aroma of baking spices with some banana and clove. Taste is medium sweet. Banana and clove with a little green apple and baking spice. Medium bodied with a thin yet slightly sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a long boozy warm finish. Overall, great.

Drank more like a saison. Tasty and enjoyable but an interesting brew. Color was slightly cloudy and pale yellow with a nice white head. Smelled of wet grass and faintly hoppy. Tasty but odd. Really earthy and dry. I wasn’t expecting the style to be so much like a saison.

Hides the alcohol well behind a brown sugar palate. Very smooth but lacking a distinctive character.

On tap. Clear orange color. Thin white head. Decent bits of lace. Big body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Kind of creamy. Just a bit of sticky in the finish, that quickly turns dry. At first, I was amazed by how smooth this drinks for 16%. I talked to some of the brewers, though, and found out that it’s actually around 12%. Apparently the labels were approved before the final product was finished. It’s a very smooth body, no bite or burn as it goes down. Just a light twinge in the finish. I was amazed that it drinks like sub-12%, but later discovered that that’s appropriate. Sort of tangy, some belgian candy sugar (not too much though), banana, breadiness. Dried citrus-fruits, very light spice. Good stuff.

Clear slight copper,but gold.1/3 of a bomber pour.Light head/lace. Aroma is tangy peppery/spicey with pear,sweet apple,pineapple maybe. Sweet candiish. A little woodsyish.Alchohol detected but hidden very well. Flavor of this is quite good with pear pineapple, orange,smooth with caramel candy,tangy with peppery/spice finish.Too smooth with good sweet/spicyness to notice any hot alcohol,mildly dry but just a little burn on the end covered well by its spicyness.Seems quite drinkable and unboozy to me,pretty great beer.

22oz bottle. Poured a golden color with an averaged sized head. Fruity, spices, bananas, some yeastiness, and toffee. Did not detect any alcohol in this one!

Bottle. Should have looked at the abv before drinking this. Pours a nice gold with great white head. Boozy at first but that gives way to some nice banana and other Belgian flavors. Solid beer, the alcohol doesn’t ruin it at all.
