look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #67 (August 2012):

LOOK: Hazed amber, great head retention

SMELL: Peppery, estery, dragonfruit, creamy, yeast, dried grass, herbal

TASTE: Intensely crisp, spicy, alcohol, slightly buttery, earthy, herbal, nutty yeast, grassy, ripe exotic fruit, parsley, shortbread, faint medicinal; slick, drying finish

So very raw—not lacking in maturity, but more just raw, and it works. It’s not as traditional, more of a modern version here. The aggressive esters do take a toll on this one being drinkable, so you’re better off sharing the bottle between a few people. A lot more fun for tastings and food pairings than on its own.

3.56/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a cloudy burnt orange color with a massive head (and what is left in the bomber spumes out like a volcano); plenty of lacing action is left behind on the side of the tulip

Smell: Green apple, clove and cinnamon (smells like a mulled cider, almost) with toffee sweetness, underneath

Taste: CIdery flavors, up front, with the apple, clove and cinnamon leading the way; developing toffee sweetness in mid-palate; peppery spice and cardamom adds another dimension, after the swallow, but leaves the beer spice dominant

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with high carbonation; slightly boozy

Overall: Rather unbalanced, with spices all over the place, and overly sweet

Thanks, mdaschaf, for the opportunity
