12 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden-orange with a short lived, foamy, white head. Aroma is of ripe peaches followed by musty yeast, bready malt and hint of hops. Body is medium and smooth. Taste is of ripe fruit, yeast, spices, piney hops and alcohol. Finish is long and very spicy. Nice brew.

A: Hazy brown amber with a fingers worth of head that dissipates to a nice veil of lace that almost completely covers.

S: Belgian yeasts and spiceyness with hints of tangerine and lemon citrus and the characteristic bubble gum aromas. Very nice.

T: Some spicy tones in the beginning with some yeastyness and sweetness towards the end. Kinda falls flat though, I was hoping for more flavors. Everything kind of runs together here.

M: Moderate carbonation works with spicyness but doesn't help the overall flavor.

This one is a bit of a fail. Yellow pour with a large off-white head, aroma is incredibly spicy with orange, pepper, coriander, and allspice. Taste is also a bit of a train-wreck, odd yeast followed by sugar, candy malts the spices listed above. Mouthfeel is medium-full, although it is quite boozy. Overall I'd recommend skipping this one, no one can be great at all things.
