look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Part of my latest haul from Hauser.. I drank half of this from the bottle before pouring the remainder into a glass..
A- Beautiful deep amber red color, very little sea-foam brown/tan head that dissipated quickly, perhaps because the bottle had been open 15 minutes by then. looks just like you'd think from the nose and taste.
S- Mead-like alcohol and honey, a some good hops nose to start, but over powered by the sweetness.. Malt and bread make an appearance as well.
T- like a honey ale! malty-sweet at first, good little hop backbone, but lots of sweet and boozy-ness for coming in at 6.7.
M- very filling/heavy mouthfeel, but remained drinkable.. Good carbonation that started to go away as the bev. warmed a little.. not much hop bite, bit it was there... Sugary.
O- Overall I really enjoyed this, but don't think I could drink more than 2 in a sitting, tasty, but sweet and boozy!

A: Coppery orange pour produces a monstrous 3 inch beige head that had a shrooming cap. Incredible head retention is lengthy in stay with a moderate rise of carbonation along the glass edge. There seems to be sprinkled cinnamon both on top and mixed in to the head. Covering is fully lasting while there is a generous amount of chunky lace adhering to the vessel walls.
S: Aroma of fresh wet citrus and honey. Surprising amount of fresh aromatic hoppiness with some sugar coated grapefruit and saffron.
T: Loads of freshly squeezed citrus and lemon lime. Saffron, sweet upfront, wet and juicy citrusy hoppiness that is dripping wet turning to a bittering of pine and citronella. Some dry lemon with some peppery herbaceous hints. Pine-scotch alcohol from the 6.7% abv with some complimentary alcohol notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and woodsy additions.
M: Honey malt depth to the mouthful, decent rate of carbonation with a good deal of bittering on the tongue.
O: Overall had an aroma that was fresh and wet with a good bite of honey and hop bitterness mixed together. Nice aromatic appeal, flavor was decent, good honey balance without being overdone and delivered on the bitterness factor. would go single here at first.
