Served up at Sal & Mookie's, Jackson, MS

A: Cloudy amber, whitish half finger head that quickly dissipates. Good lacing.

S: Malty, hoppy, earthy

T: Hoppy without being hoppy. Chocolate comes in with a smooth malty finish. Very tasty.

M: Medium with medium carbonation.

O: Haven't had one of these in a while. really good on tap. A fine brew for those who don't like their beer too hoppy and even finer for those who do.

Pours a cloudy cidery color with a minimal, but white and a bit frothy head. I like the cloudy look, it looks very appetizing.

Fruits and hops come quickly on the nose, with a very slight malt background. I'm also getting memories of being in a barn filled with hay bales. A tiny bit of funkyness as well.

Wow, the fruit is very present in the taste, leaving me feeling like I just munched on some blueberries with a hint of banana. The hops are present, but very balanced with the fruityness.

The mouthfeel is fantastic, not too thin, but not thick like a stout should be.

Overall this beer surprised me a lot. I don't think I've had a beer that has really come through with the fruityness without actually adding fruits like this does. Amazing!

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Copper color, good head and lacing, extraordinary carbonation. The carbonation was intense and exciting. This is probably the best part of the beer. It seemed a little too cloudy for a beer with no sediment in the bottom.

Smell: This is tough because the smell is weak. It's a little metallic (but it's from a bottle and I can always taste and smell metal from the cap), possibley a hint of hops, mild caramel or taffy smell, slightly nutty.

Taste: Malt liquor-like but not offensive. Bitter caramel-like.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied but closer to light. I would have liked to feel more carbonation.

This beer is light and easy to drink. Even though it would be fun and easy to drink a lot of them, there's still a unique flavor that's confusing but makes me want more.
