UPDATED: DEC 30, 2015 1yr old bottle poured into snifter. Pours a hazy golden amber with a thin white head that lingers throughout. Scattered, sticky lacing follows the drink. Aroma is pine, honey, citrus, moss, booze, grapefruit, and candied sugar. A fresh bottle has an astringency to the scent that is gone in this aged version. The flavor is piney sweet with sugary citrus notes and a tinge of malt. The ABV is well hidden after some time in the cellar, but is noticeable after some gulps. A medium mouthfeel accompanies a lively feeling on the tongue. Absolutely delicious beer and a perennial favorite. It’s like beer and mead had a beautiful baby together.
355ml bottle from Elizabeth Station shared with George on Greenpoint campground. Slightly hazy golden with a tan head. Aroma is slightly bready, candied citruses. Taste is similar, very boozy. Quite good. rboozer (7) - - JUL 15, 2017 does not count

Hazy dark orange with thin off white head. Orange, malt aroma. Sweet, boozy bittersweet flavors. Big, thick, juicy body. Long malty, bitter finish. Heaven on steroids.

Had to rate because of all the FB ranting about it and in bev. Sam wants it pulled. Don’t know if I blame him or not but thought I’d get a rating in. Dark copper penny color and incredible hop aroma. Thick and kind of sweet it only downside, alcohol well hidden. Really good and really expensive. snoot8726 (99) - Terre Haute, Indiana, USA - MAY 29, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2017 Bottle into snifter. Pours a deep amber with a white head. Notes of floral hops and booze on the nose. Same on the palate with a bit of caramel. Nice slight booze burn on the finish. Great brew but not worth the price tag.
