ben4321 (6547) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Location: 750 ml bottle from Central Market, 8/12/13

Aroma: The aroma is extremely sweet with bready malts, dark fruit, caramel, and spices
Appearance: It pours a hazed reddish color with a quick dissipating head and no lace
Flavor: Tastes mid-heavy sweet with some spice, but not enough to balance the sweetness
Palate: The body is medium, it is fairly sticky, has lively carbonation, and a tingly finish
Overall Impression: This beer is okay but not great. The flavors work decently together, but still, it feels a drop flawed. Overall, it is a little too sweet and fairly unexciting.

31.4 oz. bottle. 6.6% ABV per the label. Pours a thin short lived ivory head, over a clear light amber (SRM 10) body.....nose is cereal malts, hints of raisin.....taste is light raisin, cereal, finishing with a dry sharp bitterness.....mouth feel light of medium, astringent, light acid from carbonation. This misses the proclaimed style by a good bit. The malt back bone, which should be in the ascendancy, is too simple and needs more complexity. It is not a bad tasting beer and does not have any horrid things going on. It just is not a Biere de Garde. BJCP 6/3/11/4/5

Bomber. Put is orange cloudy. Thin lingering head. Citrus aroma. Smooth citrus taste. Low bitter. Probably better in bottle than can.

Dogbrick (13144) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 29, 2013
Pours a cloudy orange-brown color with a medium foamy off-white head that dissipates steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of musty malt and citrus. Light to medium body with flavors of grainy malt, lemons and yeast. The finish is slightly funky with a fruity aftertaste. Just average overall.

Can: Cloudy brown amber....small tan head. Aroma is caramel/ toffee....tangy... Taste is the same with a bit of spice and peppering. Different, and not too bad at all..enjoyed it.

vipinvelp (4469) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - JAN 10, 2013
Hazy orange with decent off-white foam head. Aroma is little sweet, some fruits present (orange, mandarin). Taste is smooth low bitter country beer, bit fruity. Aftertaste turns more bitter in time, but still not much, smooth afternoon beer. (Houston 201301)

raradel (343) - Atlanti Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Enjoyed at a @JaxBrewBitch bottle share at Brewer’s pizza in Jacksonville,FL... This one was a little boring. Like the idea and design of the can, but that’s not enough to save the beer inside. Mediocre.
