Not quite fall, but just purchased, i can pretend. Pour: nice copper brown, off white copper head. Nose: caramel malts, very malty sweet with a light spicy hop aroma at the end. Taste: to agree with smell sweet light caramel malts, with a light spice hop profile. not a ground breaker, but has a subtle calm taste.

Orange pour. Toffee and lightly malty nose with a touch of hops. Flavor is the same, again pleasant but a little boring.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle (Release #27, 5.8%ABV) pours a pale golden amber color with a finger of white head that leaves only a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is grass and mild spice with caramel. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness with a grassy and spicy hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, one of the better brews I have tried in this style. Recommended.

Pours a clean copper color with a nutmeg aroma. Taste is pumpkin, with a light malt flavoring. A hin t of sweetness, maybe cinnamon and sugar. A good fall marzen, very drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle. Nice, copper color, with a big, foamy, beige head. The nose is bready, with some resinous and floral hops and a touch of vanilla and ripe bananas. Mildly sweet, with a good, mellow bitterness. Medium body, a bit astringent, and pretty dry. Good yeasty and malty character, but a little overhopped, in my opinion.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Caramel orange with a white head. Sweet but sharp aroma with earthy hops. Medium to full body. Flavor is malt forward with nice round sweetness that leads to a subtle earth background. It regains it’s malt sweetness with a very crisp finish. Very enjoyable fest brew.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly sour and woody aroma from a clear copper/orange body. Initial taste is of band-aids and some kind of medicinal bitterness. I’ll admit I didn’t think that I would continue drinking this much longer after that taste, but it does kind of grow on you and evolves into a more barnyard type taste. A bit of lemony citrus flavor comes out along with some hay. I was expecting more of a fall harvest amber, but with a name like Fest Devious from Epic, I guess I should have known better. While I probably wouldn’t buy this again, it was interesting.

From the bottle the color is orange and a little cloudy with a thick orange white head, the aroma is initially very light sour, the taste is sour but light and surprisingly refreshing and rather unexpected, the finish is sour overall I am having a hard time picking specific flavors but a great sour beer

Release #23, 5.9% abv. Aroma of malt and slight hop note. Taste of a marzen, slightly sweet, malty, with just a hint of hops in the background. A drinkable fall brew, thumbs up.
