opaque bunt orange color with white thin head. smells like apricots, apple, pear juice, sugar, maple syrup. flavor was very carbonated, clean, lemon pledge kind of taste. acidic, dry, quick disappearing fruit flavors but the malt and yeast kind of stick around for desert. pear ,apples, white grapes, brown sugar, barnyard sawdust and hay. and yes b, haha circus midgets. :)

Hazy amber with a rich white head. Bubbly CO2 content. Brown taste. Overfermented/matured. Fruity vanilla belgian aftertaste. Quite thin body for this strength.

A hazy orange beer with an orange head. The aroma is sweet hoppy combined with notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet yeasty with notes of caramel and a dry end, but surprisingly I find the mouthfeel somewhat watery.

Clouded amber appearance, good head formation. Rich malty fruit aroma, sherry-ish, mild earthiness. Sweet rich malt palate, apricot jam and cherries, noticeable alcohol warmth, mildly bitter in the finish. Is great for a split second but disappears a little.

[bottle from peckhams] Amber colour, moderate head. Aroma is fruity, banana and some red berry, caramel and amaretto notes also present. body is watery, and there is more alcohol here than any 7.5% beer should have. great aroma, the rest is crap.

12oz. bottle. Slightly murky dark orange with a thin film of off-white head. Raisins, dark toffee, rich alefruit aromatics. Caramel malt, currants, light herbal hoppiness. Mildly tart finish with residual caramel malt and hints of alefruit. Mouthfeel is medium, almost heavy, slightly chewy.

henry3r (586) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - DEC 16, 2006
The 12.7 ounce bottle poured a murky brownish amber colored beverage with a modest sized off-white frothy head that did not last long and left almost no lacing on the glass. The aroma was dominated by malt with notes of sweet, dark, dried fruits such as plum and raisin. There were also notes of aged leather with an earthy undertone. The body was medium-full with a normal carbonation and a slightly sharp acrid mouthfeel. The flavor starts off moderately sweet and then teaks on an alcohol warmth and sharpness with a bit of a bite on the tip of the tongue toward the end of the medium-long finish. This one could have benefited from another year or two of aging ... my bad.

hopscotch (11236) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 10, 2007
Bottle (can’t read the date)... Murky caramel-colored ale with a small, wispy, white head. Sweet caramel aroma and flavor. Basically, it’s liquid caramel with some subtle apple and pear esters. Although it’s sweet, it’s not too sweet! Medium-bodied and milky with medium carbonation. Rich, caramelly finish with a small hop tingle. Thanks to vyvvy for shipping the bottle to me!

bitbucket (2166) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - APR 5, 2007
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a thin and rapidly dissipating white head. Aroma of nuts and prunes with a very light flowery hop presence. Medium body and mild carbonation. Sweet taste of brown sugar, fruit, prunes. Somewhat dry finish with a touch of smoke. The hops just barely show up.
