Appearance: Light goldy sort of murky color. Good finger width of head on it.

Smell: Sort of sharp in the sense of spice, but, well, fruity?

Taste: Taste was with spice, with the after taste of fruit. I recommend letting it sit for a bit as it is best tasting after sitting a few degrees above room temp. After that it is sort of banana-ish tasting. Much better.

Overall: I'd drink this again. For my personal preferences, though, I wouldn't go seeking it out. But definitely a good beer brewed the right way.

Reviewed from notes taken 7-10-13. No bottle date noted.

I poured a decent head over an amber body. The beer was translucent with nothing noted floating in it.

The nose started out malty with dark fruits. Banana showed up, figs and spices closed the show. Sniffs after the first couple also revealed sugar.

The taste followed the nose well. Malt and dark fruit followed by bananas and earth with sugar and spice throughout. As it warmed more wheat/grain notes are detected.

Body was light-medium. It left a light residue near the back of the tongue.

Overall I enjoyed this beer, but could not see myself calling it "outstanding."

Color is cloudy orange. Very little head. Tantalizing aroma of orange, yeast, and butterscotch. Bit of an early kick from the yeast that mellows out into complex, sweet malt, a bit of fruitiness, and a dry finish. Some sharpness to it, but enough subtlety underneath to even things out. Apparently, this is brewed with both beet sugar and tulip leaves, but I don't think I would've known that had I not read it.

Very nice, indeed.
