look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

(purchased from the brewery - best by of May 14 2014 - poured into a balloon)

A: champagne amber liquid, slight haze at first... about 1/2" of semi-compact sudsy foam forms, then soon recedes into a thin collar and even thinner island of small bubbles in the center... not too inspiring

S: juicy fruit gum or circus peanut - you smell it right away as the beer is pouring... very fruity... taffy-like... certain Duvel-like spicy phenolics take hold moments in

T: surprising toasty-sweet grain, or toasted-over caramel, or caramelized wood (but not smoky) - can't decide which - it does have an ember-y quality that lingers... potent smack of yeast spice in the immediate follow-through - though this does fade in intensity with each sip... perfumy spice in the aftertaste... the juicy fruit element slowly makes its way to the fore, eventually sitting in concert with the other flavors... you know what? it kinda tastes like alcoholic Irn-Bru!

M: pretty light and dry, thankfully (considering the threat of sweets suggested by the of its fruity aromas)... the phenols maintain a consistent, low glow heat in the center of the palate, emanating up into the nostrils... a super mild, juicy viscosity develops later on... it drinks fairly crisp and clean altogether

O: not a bad beer, though not exactly what I anticipated... the more you get into it, the more you recognize a characteristic Weyerbacher flavor - in part that sort of nut-shell, toasted-wood thing that I just recently noticed in their barleywine... interesting enough to try out once (in awhile)

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

Hazy, amber appearance with some orange hues. Decent head when poured, some lacing.

Floral bouquet with notes of spice.

Outstanding taste with floral and orange notes. Slight bitterness with a sweet finish.

Very smooth mouthfeel, not too much carbonation and light in the mouth.

Overall, an excellent beer.
