3.43/5 rDev -5.2%
Appearance: It has a nice hazy orange/amber color to it. It has a nice light beige head that dies down moderately and leaves next to no lacing.
Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of Belgian candi sugar, dark fruit (mostly raisins), some caramel and perhaps some cloves.
Taste: Like the aromas, it has a some Belgian candi sugar, raisins, cloves, faint caramel and some bready yeast.
Mouthfeel: It has a med/high carbonation with a decent overall balance and feel.
Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with average flavors and aromas. Nothing exciting.

3.5/5 rDev -3.3%
Bottle: Poured a hazy amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of light candi sugar notes, dry raisins and cereal notes. Taste is also dominated by sweet raisins notes with some residual sugar and some easily discernable cereal notes. Body is about average for style with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol.

3.24/5 rDev -10.5%
Poured from a 660ml. bottle, no freshness info.
Appearance: Average head but retention is super weak as it all disappears within a minute! The color is a nice dark peach though.
Smell: Cinnamon, strong spices, candi sugar. Not bad.
Taste: Cloves, mild cinnamon, candied flavor. Pretty much like the aroma but a bit dialed down.
Mouthfeel: Lively carbonation that eases into a warming feel but for the style, it lacks a little presence.
Overall: Their other beers seemed to garner good praise which makes this one all the more disappointing. I will try the others though.
