Bottle. The pour is a light clear orange. The aroma is sweet and spicy mix. The taste has some booze to it, but a good mix.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with small frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is fruity malt and wheat. Medium mouth, dark fruit, caramel with a strong booze presence, good. 48FanInCali (857) - California, USA - MAR 11, 2015
Bottle. Arguably one of the worst beers I have ever had. Unintentionally funky (infection maybe)? Not sure what is up with this.

Sampled at an ESBLS. Very hazy gold. An off white thin head. A funky fand fruity aroma is pleasant and fairly big. A big fruity flavor. Aggressive. Bitterness. Very complex fruit with a deep resonant bitter after taste. Alcohol is hidden. A little of this goes a long way. A higher score than the beer deserves.

Bottle from TODD! Thanks.
A: Cloudy gold color with a floating white head. Lacing.
N: Pineapple, orange, red licorice, mango, biscuit, grapefruit, toffee, more fruit.
T: Very sweet, bitter, alcoholic.
M: Medium body with a touch of carbonation. Alcohol is pronounced.
O: Large beer with a lot of orange notes. Time has certainly helped it calm a little.

Big bottle in a taster. Pours hazy golden with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of oak and vanilla, some spices and light fruits, caramel and pale malts, some notes of alcohol, and hints of dough. Flavor the same with a decent blend. Average to smoother texture. An interesting beer but not the best. jackl (8423) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 3, 2014
Bottle. Amber pour with a small head. Concentrated peach on the nose. Strong caramel malt. Sweet toasted bread. Taste shows some signs of oxidization. Mineral, some pennies. Earth. An almost yogurt-like tang. Medium body, soft carbonation. Good stuff. Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 1, 2014
