Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 29, 2009
Bottle from Butters. Pours a watered down coke color body with a nice lasting off-white head. Smells of ripe fruit, some banana and farmhouse notes. Tastes the same with an unappetizing cardboard presence.

jimbowood (1036) - Freeport, Georgia, USA - MAR 12, 2009

Butters (3928) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2009
Pours a dark hazy orange with great tan head. Aroma is sweet, and even some bubblegum. Flavor is a little spicy and yeasty. Velvety body. Not bad at all, I was actually rather impressed with this one.

NachlamSie (2898) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 16, 2008
On tap. Pours a muddy brownish amber with no head. Strong sweet esters are present in the aroma. This is heavy on the cardamom and clove with hints at sweet malt and light fruits. The mouthfeel is full and sticky with spices up front and also lingering in the finish.Fruity hints at apples and maraschinos are made. This gets very slightly buttery after a pint, but it is a good drink nonetheless.
