The bottle itself is nice, and clearly custom made, what i was most impressed by was the smell. It really hits you with the aroma of spices. The flavor and feel by themselves are ok, but the more subtle efforts to make the beer different from competitors is what won my vote.

From the blue 330 ml. bottle. Sampled on February 24, 2018.

It has a foggy pale yellow look to it under a moderate white head. But I scored the look low because the label reads "caramel color added."

Definite aroma of coriander, rosemary, sage, lemonzest, and orange peel. Some toasted bread under the forward spiciness.

Light to medium body.

The taste has a spicy character but I wouldn't call it bold. Also a sweet euro-malt flavor too.

I enjoyed this one a lot. Light, crisp, refreshing taste that is perfect for summer. Great taste, decent head, very good carbonation.

330mL blue bottle
Served in a Carlsberg pilsner glass

This beer pours a slightly hazy, pale yellow color. It is topped with two inches of fluffy, white head that leaves decent lacing.

It smells skunked as soon as the cap is removed. After the skkunky aroma dissipates I smell a healthy dose of candy orange which is a welcome relief.

The taste starts a little skunky but not as bad as the initial smell would indicate. Once I get past the skunked flavor I get sweet orange flavor. The skunked flavor persists throughout the entire beer.

Light mouthfeel with a lot of carbonation

This would probably be a lot better on tap without being lightstruck. I think I'll pass on the blue bottles in the future.

On tap at Bonds Tavern in West Orange. Pours a golden effervescent hue with minimal frothing. Mellow aroma replete with hints of citrus and sugar. Similar overall flavor profile.
