Thanks to Tieman for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

Pours a hazy golden-yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Tiny particles of sediment are seen floating around in the beer after the pour. Smell is of malt, grain, fruit, earth, spice, and corn tortilla aromas. Taste is much the same with malt, grain, honey, cardboard, fruit, spice, and wood flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with an interesting concept, but the aromas and flavors are fairly muddled and make it difficult to pick out each of the ingredients on their own.

Serving type: bottle.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Look: Pours a copper cloudy brew with decent but dissipating head that leaves webbed lacing on the glass.

Smell: Sweet fruity notes with funky wood and grass behind that and a faint wisp of bready malts.

Taste: A sweet strong brew with very present wood and earthy notes.. As the glass warms hops are present but, I would not consider this too hop forward. It is very well balanced and totally drinkable. A bit of boozy warmth hits the throat on the finish..

Feel: Very light mouthfeel.. Smooth on the palate.

Overall: A very well thought and balanced brew. The only con is the price point which comparable to other corked 750 ml beers in its class..

Clear amber colored ale with a good off-white colored head. The color reminds me of copper.

Smells mildly sweet and woody with a slight fruity scent. As close as I can ID it it is peach.

Starts out mildly sweet and fruity with a taste of cedar plank to it. Fruity flar that reminds me of peach ice cream.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a mild flavored strong ale.

A-rich amber with a white head. Very effervescent. Head lingers with thick white lacing
A-aroma is grass, pine,grapefruit. Followed by a light sweetness. Perhaps the prickly pear and grapefruit. Finishes with a slight booze and woodiness.
T-hop forward with a decent malt sweetness in the bAckground. What I assume is the green chili grapefruit prickly pear juice gives an interesting but subtle aftertaste. Finishes with a slight boozieness to dry it out. When warmer spicyibess from chilies is evident.
M-almost creamy but finishes dry. Lingering sweetness is welcome and not over powering
O-an interesting example of a strong ale. Sweet and boozy with light nuances in flavor throughout. A fun, drinkable detour that manages to not be overbearing.

Pours a clear golden color with a white head that leaves chunks of lacing.

Smells of malt sweetness with some grass and oak.

Tastes of a solid malt backbone with some oak and hop notes. Malts lead off with some sweetness leading into a bit of bread. Fruits come next where I pick up a bit of prickly pear. A bit of wheat sharpness comes next and adds to the fruits giving way to grapefruit. Oak comes towards the end before finishing with a grassy hop note.

Mouthfeel is medium-full with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is okay, but there is too much going on. It does not feel cohesive, and is not worth the price ($13.65 for 750mL).

Appearance - pours a medium amber color with little to no lacing and head.

Smell - light aroma but you can pick up the oak barrels.

Taste - breads, slightly fruity with a grassy funkiness. Oak and wine barrels are present and it's slightly boozy as it finishes.

Mouthfeel - medium carbonation which dissipates on the tongue as quickly as it does when it's poured.

Overall - good light tasting ale for the alcohol content. It's hard to pick out the individual characteristics of this well blended ale but there are hints all the way through.
