My bottle [12oz] shared with HogTownHarry & biegaman. Pours a hazy orange-copper with an average size diminishing frothy off-white head. Aroma is spicy, yeasty and fruity along with some wheat and alcohol. Flavour is herbal and yeasty along with some sugary sweetness, alcohol and some spices in the finish. Medium bodied. A bit boozy but it’s still a pretty good beer. HogTownHarry (7084) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - FEB 12, 2013

Richmond 19th. Hazy gold, aroma is banana and spice, faint rubber. Flavor is a match – but rubber missing – nice. Better than I had expected based on recent anniversary beers from these guys. tia (2228) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JAN 19, 2013
RG 19. Bottle. Hazy yellow with light head. Almost banana-y, almost bubble gummy, but lighter. Maybe cloves. Slightly rubbery but not in a bad way. Butters (4062) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Sampled at the Richmond Gathering 19. Almost clear pale yellow with ring of bright white head. Orange peel, lemon peel, peppery, spicy, sweet, honey, vanilla. Complex, but with the lemon citrus bitterness to finish. Good, not great.

12 ounce bottle shared by Butters at the 19th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering. Pours a hazy lemon color with a medium sized frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of bread, honey, spice, citrus. The taste is stone fruits, spice, citrus, herbal hop finish. Medium bodied, slight lingering bitterness. Nice beer. jeremytoni (3085) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - JAN 18, 2013
From a bottle poured an amber color with a fair amount of head. Strong sweet malty flavor with a quick finish. leah2974 (429) - Georgia, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Hazy gold color. Yeasty nose with heavy spices. Alcohol burn. Strong citrus peel bitterness with a soft edge. jeremyh70 (1115) - Missouri, USA - JAN 13, 2013
A hazy straw color with a lot of sediment. Very little head or lacing. Sour aroma that mingles with the pepper and some citrus and sweetness. Starts somewhat sweet, some funk becoming apparent and also the spicy pepper. Grapefruit and lemon undertones with also just a bit of alcohol that shows up in warmth more than taste, which is impressive for the 10.5 ABV. Big flavors and aromas. Medium/high carbonation and medium mouthfeel. A little lingering aftertaste but not much. Good beer but too big to have to often. Bought at Beertopia.
