The label says it was made with orange peel and vanilla bean and those flavors come in through the scent of the beer. Luckily, that’s what the beer tastes like, too. That kind of consistency often makes for a solid ale.
The front end of the beer has a candy orange sweetness, almost like sherbet, but the finish of the Ruin Ten is a harsh contrast to the rest of the beer and that’s where it falls down.
This is a bit problematic. The bitterness is so sharp after the sweetness of the beer that it’s unpleasant to drink. I wish it wasn’t so severe but there it is and I have reservations about recommending it.
