Draft sample at brewpub. Poured clear reddish brown color with an average fizzy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate honey yeasty aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture. Medium to heavy dark honey sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where exceeded with a complex beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at the brewery. Pours to a murky fired pine colored body with no head. The flavor is full of light candi sugar and bubblegum with sweet golden raisins. Slightly cloying. The sweetness is really strong. The aroma, however, was surprisingly light. I was expecting huge sweet malts and got only a subtle bubblegum. The palate was really sweet. Once you get past that, it was a decent brew.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured up in a half pint glass from the tap at the brewery. The body has a full on haze to it carrying a copper – orange hue and thin off white head. The aroma is sweet honey, some maltiness, a hit of pepper, some Belgian candi sugar and assorted fruit notes. The taste is thick sweet malts, candi sugar and sweet citrus orange juice from the first sip. Later I get faint pepper to go along with notes of banana, prunes, sweet cinnamon and sugar coated apricots, honey and ripe red delicious apples. Never gets too tart or too sweet. Yummy offering.
