machfive55 (358) - Columbia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2009
Poured orange with a four finger head and a very strong carbonation. There was not a whole lot to the aroma, generally slightly malty. There were some complex peppery, and citrusy notes, mostly orange. The beer is quite dry, and there is a mild hopiness but only a moderate bitterness. The alcohol comes through slightly but not overpowering. Enjoyable.

maltdog (623) - Colorado, USA - DEC 29, 2008
Bottle. Cloudy deep straw color with a large airy head. Beautiful spicy-fruity aroma evokes bubblegum wrapper, flowers, and musk. The flavor combines spice, rum, and maple with hints of banana, galangal, and clove. There is a "taste" of sugar without actually being sweet. On the tongue, the beer feels rich, doughy, and electric with spice and carbonation. Peppery aftertaste is also barley vegetal. Very nice.

Light golden color. Decent foamy head. Slightly sweet, yeasty, and hoppy aroma. Sweet and malty flavor. Raisins and cookies. Not particularly complex. Hoppy, bitter finish. Pretty decent, although nothing really special.
