look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

2010 vintage pours a cloudy brownish orange with a sticky frothy head. Aromas of spicy candied pralines, red hots, licorice and lots of citrus esters and also honey after some time in the glass. Taste is very sweet balanced by hoppy bitterness. Taste comes across as candied nuts, a hint of citrus balanced by a hoppy finish and a slight touch of heat. Very tasty now but will be curious to see how the hops and alcohol fades and whether more fruit and secondary flavors come through over time. Very nice beer overall.
