A- Fairly cloudy copper color with a thin layer of head that sticks around but leaves no lacing.

S- Coriander and bubblegum with a little bit of sulfur and fresh grain.

T- The grain comes through with earthy hops and a bit of the belgian character. There's a lot going on but it's not very good instead tasting pretty grainy and muddy. The finish is a spicy bitterness.

M- Pretty thin and dry with medium low carbonation. There's also a bit of a grainy texture to it that doesn't seem to fit. It could definitely use more carb for my tastes.

O- A very average beer. I've had it a couple times when it was around but probably won't go back again. Nothing terrible but nothing particularly good or interesting.

Poured orange in color, but was not cloudy or hazy at all pretty clear. Nose is light coriander and clove notes, but not much else going on. Taste is syrupy and bitter, not hoppy or very spicy. Spices are trying to come out but they don't really make it. Syrupy bitterness lingers on in the mouth, not very refreshing. This may have been an old bottle.

Bottle poured into pint glass

A: Orange, cloudy. Huge head that lasted a long time.

S: Yeast, bread, citrus.

T: Very bready, a bit citrusy, grassy

M: Very carbonated. Taste lingers.

Overall: A damn good BPA. Very imaginative. Love the citrus and yeast. Really left a lasting impression on me. I will have this again for sure.

Beautiful orange color; served in a glass. Not much of a flothy head. Wonderful aroma, nice feel and taste, a little bit strong aftertaste. Very similar to my favorite beer, Stella Artois however, packed with more flavor. Will buy this again. It was highly recommended.
