2.55/5  rDev -35.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

served on-tap @ Flying Saucer, Kansas City, MO, into a tulip glass

Pours a dark reddish color. It's got a nearly purple tinge to it. Nice, 1.5 finger head with lots of lacing. Great.

Unfortunately, the appearance is the only thing about this beer that makes sense. The aroma has some bitterness and some orange/grapefruit notes. But that Belgian yeast is throwing off spicy notes and weird plummy and nutmeggy esters and I don't even understand what's going on. Rose hips, maybe? It's not unpleasant, just confusing.

The flavor is similarly incoherent. Floral notes meets Midwestern Double IPA genericness meets an ester profile that's like some flavor of Bubbalicious that never made it past the test stages. This doesn't make any sense. It's no Shark Pants, that's for sure. And the thick mouthfeel doesn't assist those Belgian yeast flavors at all.

I would avoid this beer. It's a novelty, yes, but its hard for me to find enjoyment in this one.

Serving type: on-tap
