2.71/5 rDev -30%
750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - A little hazy. Deep orange. Nice white head. Thick collar and nice surface foam.
Smell - Vanilla is most prevalent. Cinnamon behind it. I guess some graininess. Kinda like a wheatwine.
Taste - Sweet. Lots of vanilla. Spice builds into the flavor and lingers in the finish. The middle is an odd sweet body. I suppose that's rice, because it doesn't taste like malt.
Mouthfeel - Heavy and sweet, but not by Bruery standards. Medium carbonation.
Overall - Having had two Or Xata beers, I can safely say I don't think I would enjoy the title beverage.

Bottle shared at the BFD Christmas party.
Cloudy amber color with a minimal head.
Aroma is heavy on the vanilla sugar and cinnamon.
The flavor follows the aroma.
This was entirely too sweet for my palette.
I'm glad to have tried it, but I'm also glad I didn't have to drink it alone.

The beer is copper hued with ruby highlights. An inch or so of off white head with plenty of staying power. The aroma offers a huge dose of sweet vanilla, cinnamon, butterscotch candies, booze. Smells as advertised - like an alcoholic horchata. Overly sweet and cloying. A fun idea, but the sweetness combined with alcohol is just too much.
