Grapey, woody, lots of pith. Leaves the mouth feeling very dry. Unpleasant, musty, lingering aftertaste.

Umami smell, almost shoyu. Sharp molasses and cereal flavor. Pecan presence is nice but you have to search for it. Finishes relatively cleanly which is nice considering how thick it seems.

Draft at Sin City Brewing, Las Vegas
It was pretty good. Not too sweet, somewhat bitter. I don't know, go drink it yourself.
Draft at Two Bothers tap house
A *very* hoppy brown. Lots of roast, bitter coffee, graham and then round, bitter hops. Basically a paler CDA. Bitterness lingers for a while.
Draft
Intensely bitter, metallic, buttery to start. It’s assertive but distinctive, unexpected but hard to dislike. For me at least. Cereal and grassy hop bitterness close, though the finish is clean.
Draft
This was very good. Balanced with notes of apricot and citrus.
Draft at Draft Picks Naperville
It's okay. This time was sort of watery orange-flavored with very little of the hefeweizen spices.

Fits the previous descriptions. Chocolate, pumpkin spice, lingering burnt bitterness.
Draft
Strong Belgian spice up front, pleasant grapey (but not explicitly grapefruit to my mind) fruit flavor follows. I just didn’t love the spice flavors here.
Draft
Description says uncomplicated and it is, however it just tastes like uncomplicated pine hop perfume. Oily and bitter.
Draft
Quite bitter, but good.

Draft at McMenamins, Mill Creek
Not bitter enough for a bitter. Whatever redeeming qualities it has are overshadowed by how week and watery this beer is.

Biscoff cookies, OJ and prunes. The JUICE for my Festivus Feats of Strength.
Bottle at Home
Good. A mild juicy-type ipa. It's pretty good
Can at Front Street Cantina, Naperville
Drank most of it before I remembered to take a picture. Fresh, citrus, pine, intensely flavored. Pithy, prickly finish.
Draft
Light, vinous, sweet mellow cereal, delicious
Draft
Round and bright fruit flavor, mostly orange-like citrus. Crystal clear, nice to have a straight IPA for once. Not bitter, very refreshing. Great beer.
Draft at Work
A yeasty wit with a balanced but strong holiday spice character. Smooth, buttery, kind of like drinking a ginger snap cookie.

An unusual mix of flavors here, like a helles lager crossed with a Belgian pale. Lots of estery banana flavors and even a hint of spice. Pale gold in color. Finishes with a cloudy yeastiness. This isn't what I would call a typical fest bier but it was pretty fascinating.
Draft at Work
Rounded lightly hoppy amber with a malty cereal backbone. It's been a long time since I had one but the first thing that came to mind was an amped up Sam Adams. It was fine, but kind of non-descript and in a style that is not a favorite.
Draft at Work
Oatmeal sweetness, roast coffee, thin body, fairly ideal porter. No idea if this is actually made with oats.
A hazy on the dry/resinous side. Grapefruit peel, no sweetness.
I don't feel like this has always been this bad. Reminds me of the old palate-killing Vienna lager from Hi-Fi. Funky-nutty and not much else.
Don’t know what they did to it this year. Smells terrible.
