Koperen kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt kruidig, fruitig, zoetig. Smaakt fruitig, honing, kruiden. AnnaEA (24) - Canton, Ohio, USA - MAY 17, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2017 Pleasant, but non-descript. I would gladly have a growler of this at a 4th of July party, but I wouldn’t expect anyone to ask what was so they could buy it themselves. b3shine (9198) - Indiana, USA - APR 18, 2017
My bottle also had a best-by date of 04-Aug-16.
Edit: 5/18/2017 I got in touch with Alpine, and confirmed that the bottle I got from my local IS out of date. I’ll re-rate this when I can get a fresh bottle. Great customer service from Alpine, and I’m going to complain at the bottle shop.
Draft to taster at The Pint Room. Looks solid; a transparent golden orange with white head. Smells and tastes of honey, oranges, and ale yeast with a mildly bittersweet backbone. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied. Inoffensive, but underwhelming. fidelis83 (2523) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAR 23, 2017
Darkish orange, almost amber pour with a one finger, creamy off white head. Aroma is mostly honey and coriander, some bread, oxidation. Flavor is quite heavy in the honey department, but in a good way, a fair amount of coriander, but not as much as the aroma implies, nice floral notes, really nice orange blossom honey aftertaste, hampered, slightly by a slight metallic twinge. Medium body, creamy at first, then somewhat drying, light, soft carbonation. Good stuff, I really like the way it shows off the honey. dfinney23 (3424) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 28, 2017
Heavy on the honey and herbs, light on the beer itself. Needs more backbone.

Bomber. Deep honey golden with a short loved head. Mandarin aroma with malts and some honey. Mandarin and honey lead the flavor profile and there isn’t a lot more. Feel is too thin. gyllenbock (9977) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2017
On tap at Green Flash, Mira Mesa. A bit hazy orange with a small white head. Sweet with honey, some herbs, light fruit and some malt. The body was soft as was the bitterness. Nothing special. ansalon (4151) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - FEB 12, 2017
Pours cloudy orange with a medium frothy white head. Aromas of peach, lactose, tangerine, resin. Taste is quite fruity with low bitterness. Mouthfeel is juicy and light bodied with moderate carbonation. kryon (3870) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 12, 2017
Pours cloudy apricot with low white head That1Guy (2238) - Colorado, USA - FEB 5, 2017
Aromas bready, malty, herbal
Taste has herbal, bready notes with coriander
Bottle best by 4 Aug 16. What the fuck? Why did I buy this? Guessing it was supposed to say 17. Anyway, get a ton of DMS on the aroma. Was hoping for the nice citrus that it advertises, but there isn’t any to be found.
