Pours an orange like color. White head and lacing. Aroma of potpourri herbs and citrus. Citrus and vanilla in the flavor blending with spicy herbs. A clash of flavor. Slightly acidic, though short lived and Medium bodied, well carbonated. Semi dry. Weird beer. The flavors didn't really work.

Picked up a single from TW Camelback in late November for $2.79. Bottled on 10-2-14.

Beer poured golden-orange with a white head that disappeared quickly.

Nose is sweet, of vanilla, oranges, and a hint of mint.

Taste is borderline cloying sweet-sour. There is a lot going on here.. I am catching apricot, orange, hint of chocolate, vanilla, and a hint of mint. Finish is sour orange-chocolate.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, not overly smooth or refreshing.

Overall not a bad beer, just one that is too sweet for me.

Not real special. Fairly delicious, goes well with food. Tastes like standard-fare imperial porter.

12oz bottle dated 10/2/14 poured into a pint glass
A: Orange, slightly hazy with a thin head
S: Vanilla, light malt, stone fruit
T: The stone fruit/vanilla match the nose. Also sour, though the sour doesn't complement the other flavors at all
M: Light-bodied and sour
O: This would work well featuring the vanilla and stone fruit or the stone fruit and sour. Unfortunately the sour doesn't complement the more prominent fruit+vanilla well though the beer as a whole does pair well with the Holst suite
