look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
750ml Bottle poured into a DFH snifter.
Appearance: Pours a lovely golden orange with a slight haze. Two fingers of thick white frothiness. Amazing retention and thick lacing glued to my glass.
Aroma: Interesting apple cider, fruity and yeasty, trace aromas of some spice. Hints of a banana/clove hefeweizen type aroma.
Taste: Same as nose. Apple and pear fruity flavors, wheat, and some spice quality, though not anything that is clearly detectable.(Not getting a defining cayenne or cilantro)
Mouthfeel: A bit lighter body, soft carbonation. A bit dry in the finish. 9% is not detectable. Not a bad offering.
Another off-centered-ale from DFH.
Serving type: bottle

This pours with a radiant wheat yellow color and a thick foamy head.
The nose is a bit wheat, a little bit of Apple cider, with a spicy tone of chili powder and paprika.
The flavor is strong on the front palate with Apple sweetness. The middle shows substantial wheat grain and I got caramel malts. The spicy cayenne is more a spicy nutmeg or cinnamon and it reminds of some Christmas beers. The great thing is that the complexities of this beer seem to change with each sip.
The feel is light and crisp and disguises the higher ABV.
I enjoyed this beer immensely, it's complex, it's different and it kept me guessing.
Serving type: on-tap
