On tap at The Bruery in Placentia, CA.

Pours a murky yellow-orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots and streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, fruits, and spices. Taste is much the same with a fruity flavor on the finish. There is a medium amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that has both fruity and spice aromas and flavors but the spice seems to be predominant between the two aspects.
