It looks a chestnut colour, small bit of foam that's gone quickly.

The smell is nice. Fruity with hints of a mild tartness.

The taste is of the orange peel that's kinda bitter, again a hint of tartness. The most surprising thing is how well the abv is hidden.

Light bodied with light carbonation.

Pretty average brew at way above average price.

Another Very interesting beer By these guys. Appearance is a huge sick light tan head that settles down but doesn't go away, A little lace and a cloudy brown color. Aroma is very complex with balsamic vinegar, fruit, yeast malt, perfume and each time I smell it other things. Flavor is similar to aroma but not quite as complex interesting interplay between bitter sweet and tartness and has a nice dry roasted malt finish. Great body. This would be a great lunch beer.

A: The beer is relatively clear dark red in color and has some brownish hues along with a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that quickly died down, leaving some lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of sourness and oak are present in the nose along with hints of vanilla.
T: Much like the smell, the taste has a lot of flavors of toasted oak and vanilla along with a light amount of sourness. I didn't really get much in the way of malts.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit tart on the palate with a low amount of carbonation. No warming is perceptible.
O: The sourness and tartness seemed to make this beer resemble a Flanders Red Ale a little more than it did a Winter Warmer. In any event, this beer hides its alcohol remarkably well and is therefore very easy to drink considering its strength.
