Rogueone (506) - I F&ckin’ hate those guys from, Ohio, USA - MAY 19, 2008
Draft @ Brewpub: I generally like this style, and I thought this was pretty good. Copper-orange pour. Aroma of dried apple and toffee, with golden raisin. Flavor of resin, light dried fruits, and caramel malt. Overall pretty balanced and tasty. polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - MAY 3, 2008
On tap at brewery. Aroma is weak but vinous, with notes of saw dust and spice. Orange amber hue with an average sized off-white head that mostly diminished and left good lace. Flavor is resinous and spicy and saw dust. Finishes bitter. Light/medium bodied with lively carbonation. Kind of crappy and not worth a release party IMHO. ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - MAY 30, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2010 Hazy pale/light amber body with a white head. The aroma is herbal, dough, peach. The flavor is biscuit, bread, herbal and light citrus. Medium body is soft and slightly creamy. beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 4, 2007

Draught at Kuhnhenn. Pours a clear golden-orange with a small diminishing white head. Nice mild aroma of caramel malt, fruit and hops. Flavour is predominently caramel malt followed by some fruit, hops and alcohol. Alcohol’s pretty well hidden. Nice medium to full body. A really good version of the style in my opinion.

Draught at the brewery, Michigan Trip ’06. Light amber pour, small white head. Aroma featured mild alcohol and sweetness. Taste was rather boozy and felt almost oily slick. There was something that just didn’t come together for me on this one. Average at best. GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 25, 2006
Draught sampler at the brewpub. Nice orange-amber colour. Aroma of roast malt and mild caramel. Medium body. Flavour is sweet & malty to start, with some nice herbal notes developing in the finish. HogTownHarry (6823) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 24, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2006 Draught. At the brewpub with blankboy, GregClow, jerc and tupalev. Poured clear gold, white-ish head. Light herbal, slightly sour/funky hop aroma, some toasty mild, a bit of alcohol burn. Taste follows on, quite herbal-bitter, finishes quick - decent body, a little astringent - pleasing, bock? well, I’m no expert, maybe not on-style, but I liked it. jercraigs (10365) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2006
Very clear orange body with a small white head and decent lace (3+). Wine like aroma, muted alcohol. Caramel, alcohol is mild considering the abv but oddly prominent. Average to thin palate. Did not do much for me.
