A-Pours a deep hazy orange color with very little carbonation and very little lacing.
S-The aroma is nice with sweet caramel malts and some hops to balance. With a touch of alcohol aroma. But not hot alcohol.
T-The taste is much like the aroma, with strong caramel notes and and woody, earthy hops. Pretty nice taste indeed.
M-Full bodied indeed with a creamy smooth texture. Has a little alcohol in the palate which is to be expected, but in no way is it hot. Very smooth for 11.5 ABV. They did a good job on this one. My wife really likes it. And she has been into wheat beers for a while. So that should tell you something.
D-This one goes down too well.Man it's smooth.
I said this one was on tap because it was a 2007 vintage. It was in a bottle. Very good. Get some if you can find it.
Serving type: on-tap

From a 12 ounce bottle into a teku. March 2013 edition.
A- Orange and copper colored body. Exceptionally persistent head that remains even after sipping. Lace is sticky, abundant and scattered. Carbonation bubbles stick to the glass plainly visible in the body. Sexy.
S- Citrusy, sweet, honey-like. Thick sweet malt flavor. Caramel and toffee abound. A very pungent and robust flavor.
T- Continues very citrusy. Caramel, toffee and sweet malt too. The nose and taste are very consistent.
M- I love how creamy this drinks. Quite smooth and mellow. The age must have done this well, because there's zero hint of alcohol. No burn whatsoever. It's sweet as I've mentioned, with only a slight bitterness from whatever citrusy hops it started with.
This beer probably isn't getting the props it deserves. It's delicious. I can't speak to this beer flesh, but a year and four months have aged it well.
