My prize for winning a bet with a co-worker.
App- Was a whole lot darker than I thought it would be. It was more of a brown with a bit of gold to it. Fairly dense in the glass with some good cling. Just a unique color for the style.
Smell- This was a pretty nice strong ale. Fairly boozy with a bit of citrus, cream, candy, grass and hay. A little strong but got the point across.
Taste- It was good but something just didnt sit right. It had a lot competeing in the glass and was flavorul. You got more orange fruits with orange, apricot and peach flavors melded with a bit of that aroma from the hay and grass. A little bitter and hoppy to balance it all out.
Mouth- A fairly medium body with a low-medium carbonation. A lot of peach, apricot and bitter on the finish. Fairly smooth and creamy as well.
Drink- It was a nice beer to sit with. I might have not needed to open this one last night but was good none the less.

Pours golden with a substantive lasting head. Neutral aroma. Scary bottle as moisture beads outside the cork. Average mouthfeel. Dirty blonde that degenerates into yeast and alcohol, a tad of spice and fruit and more would have been better. not great drinkability.Bottle in trade with West Coast rater.

On tap at Bootlegger’s Brewery in Fullerton, CA.
Pours a clear honey orange with a tan head that fades to nothing. No lacing on this one. Smell is of grain, malt, spice, and yeast. Taste is much the same with a mild medicinal bitterness after each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but I like the way it smells over the way it tastes.

Taste - Hops play in a citrusy sweet way, but its very smooth. I get notes of apricot among the hops...and the rest just tastes like a really good golden Belgian ale.
Overall - I really like this one. This is a great spring/summer beer, its very refreshing and easy drinking. I think bootleggers has a trend of making beers with high alcoholic content, but keeping them very smooth and easy drinks...

Poured on-tap at Taco Asylum. Reviewed from notes.
A- No real head to speak of, ruby red and orangish color.
S- Fruity and light hops. Cherry and lemon notes present.
T- Hoppy and very, very fruity! Lemon and plum maybe? Those flavors take over. Tart and citrusy.
M- Very light bodied and lightly carbonated.
O- Very drinkable and fruity. Lovely lighter beer for such a strong one.
