tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - MAR 22, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2015 Bottle: Muddled, burnt orange body with a long-lasting, thick, eggshell colored collar. Aroma is... strange, perplexing. Clover honey, apple, cinnamon potpourri, faint cheap whiskey, nebulous spice, sweet vanilla, & strange notes of beeswax. What the hell is going on here? Taste starts with some contrived, artificial honey sweetness, quickly followed by another hodge podge of favors... Lavender, wheat. sweetbread, vanilla, cereal grains, apple skins, mild graham cracker, booze, I’m not really sure what is going on here. Starts off with mild sweetness but warmth makes it nearly cloying. Hard to figure this one out. Not the worst thing AB-InBev makes, but that doesn’t mean it’s good.

Poured a dark amberish orange color with aromas of offensive bourbon, wet wood, and light wheat. Flavors are pure diesel alcohol and bourbon, not good, blah, horrible overall.

Bottle. Pours cloudy dark orange with a frothy white head that leaves no lacing. Aroma is HONEY, nothing but honey. Flavor is overpowered by honey, heavy sweet taste, average carbo and a brief sweet finish. Poured out the remainder of the bottle.

Nice color and aroma. The taste is a slight drop off. Overall it's a decent bourbon beer

A nice balanced beer with a great yet mild honey aftertaste. Great on the palate with a good aroma. This was a very pleasant surprise in taste and refreshing. Fredo

Bottle: Poured a golden color with white head. Aroma is bourbon. Taste is a messy bourbon and sweet caramel malt. Just doesn’t work for me.

slowrunner77 (12895) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Fake bourbon and vanilla aroma. Not offensive, but not all that great either. Semi sweet. Still weak and over carbonated body.

dnstone (3544) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - MAR 12, 2015
Pours a golden in color. Sweet soda aroma. Tastes like like a floral cream soda.

decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Gold pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma is vanilla and wheat. Sweet honey malt with almost no bitter. A touch of old shoes. Medium body with good carbonation. No bourbon or real bourbon. Ok I guess

Horrible, though it is accurate in that it tastes like honey and bourbon. I couldn't choke it down. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a 12 LOZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Has a very sweet smell with citrus trappings with grain and malt thrown in. Appearance- This is a murky orange with transitions to more of a yellow color at the bottom of the glass. At first I thought it was the glass, but I think it’s the beer Taste- Whoa, not for me! There is a slight bourbon flavor (tat I not good) and I didn’t find this very drinkable Palate- I think this is a moderate bodied beer with medium carbonation and a oily feel to it. Overall- This was not good at all in my opinion. The flavor was downright bad and the texture didn’t compliment the experience. I will not drink this again, even if it was free.
