It pours amber with orange tinges. The head is white with tinges of orange. It has a grainy sweet aroma, spice and orange. It has a sweet flavor with grain, orange, citrus, and spices. The sweetness flavoring comes throughout the taste experience. It feels a bit syrupy with a moderately light body.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2016 On tap at Evernote in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is earthy spice (maybe some cinnamon), mild maltiness. Taste is mild lemony / herbal bitterness with some crisp carbonation. Not much going on here though.

odannyob (135) - Colorado, USA - OCT 21, 2016
Bought a six pack of cans a couple weeks ago and letm sit in one of the beer refrigerators until just now. Poured from a can into a tumbler. A nice, clean aroma. A warm, rusted orangee of colorings. Taste-wise: a background of creme soda, citrus sweet and, again, cream soda. Overall, enjoyable.

eManu (537) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 3, 2016
From draft @ Taps KL. Pours dark amber brown and a thin off white head. Aroma of malts and nuts. Flavors of light malt, walnut, and herbs. Light sweet gum flavors. Interesting but somewhat strange marriage of flavors. Something different but a bit watery. Light sweetness and body.

ciocanelu (1613) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - SEP 28, 2016
Amber color with beige head. Aroma is quite malty with a slight hint of fruit acidity reminding a bit of cider. Taste is mainly malty with some fresh baked bread crust and some grains. Its just slightly sweet at first and finishes with a hint of earthy hops. Medium to light body with medium carbonation. Overall its quite interesting style of beer. Malty but not really sweet, easy drinking and light on the palate.

bulldogops (2322) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 14, 2016
Rating #1822 - 2015.07.08 - Clear copper-amber pour, that produces a minimal bubbly foam even when poured aggressively. Aroma is potent, quite a bit of vanilla, toffee. Taste is malty sweet vanilla, gingerbread, very light and bubbly. This is a pretty good seasonal, and despite the presence of fairly colourful flavours, it remains a balanced crushable summer brew.

R4N5H (889) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 9, 2016
12oz (35.5cl) bottle at home in Amsterdam on 07-Aug-2016 poured into a long stemmed tulip glass. Clear dark amber colour with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma of malt, spices and floral pine. Medium body and carbonation. Flavour of fruit, spices and toasted malt. Lightly hopped and slightly spicy. Sweetish finish. A little too fruity for my liking.
