Poured into a Bell's tulip on 8/3/12
Cloudy, rustic orange appearance. One and a half finger head condenses slowly. Thin retention overall. Lace is good, though - dense, drippy rings.
Tropical hops aromas mix with light fruit juiciness, resulting in something of a fruit cocktail of an aroma. Peach, mango, grapefruit, apple and hints of banana. Notions of fruity bubblegum. Bread and cracker linger in the back.
The flavor is juicy in a serious way - and it doesn't stop with the fruit qualities of the yeast. Oh, there's grapefruit, peach, lemon and tangerine aplenty. Modest, clean bitterness picks up in the middle and lingers on the finish. The malt bill is really nice, too - some mildly-flavored grains.
The feel is somewhat slick and kind of grainy at the same time, but the combination works for the medium body. Carbonation is appropriately low and well within my comfort range. The aforementioned bitterness on the finish builds toward the end of the glass, but continues to retain good, residual hop flavor.
Wow, Bedlam surpassed my expectations with ease. I have no idea how old it is (I've had it for a week and a half), but it's very tasty as is. Wish I had a few more.
