3.38/5 rDev -17.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25
Appearance: Color is a dark burnt orange color. Light head on the pour and present on the edges of the glass while drinking. Some active carbonation while drinking. No lacing.
Smell: Orange peel, nutmeg, leafy greens, and heavy spices. A subtle wheat body but there is no doubt the orange peel and thick spices dominate here. The cloves and vegetal aromas also are present throughout.
Taste: Fruity hoppy tones, dry spices, and sweet oranges come through first. Cloves, mild wheat, and smooth malt tones run throughout the body. The finish is some lingering sour tones, dry wheat and hops.
Mouthfeel: Primarily dry on the palate with some spiced tones as well.
Overall: This beer gets dominated by the aged characteristics. Tons of oranges and spices all over the aroma and taste. The wheatwine of the beer seems to get primarily lost. Some interesting things going on but overall just okay.

3.46/5 rDev -15.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Pour hazy, nearly solid burnt orange in color with frothy one finger head that has good retention.
Smell is good. Defiantly a good amount of wheat and booze on the front end. Mid section is dominated by sweet orange aromas and another aggressive alcohol, nearly liqueur like presence. Not much hops are detectable but some faint grainy malt is also near the back end of the aroma.
Taste follows the nose. Sweet orange is right up front with a big alcohol bite. Some spices, mainly cinnamon, nutmeg and clove are also detectable for a brief moment before a more dominate wheat flavor along with more orange and booze finishes.
Mouthfeel is good. Mild to moderate carbonation cuts through a big thick body and a big boozy bite.
Overall this is a big beer. Maybe slightly unbalanced and it is drinking pretty hot but I like the idea.
