look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a standard pint.

A: Dark amber. Pours a 1 finger, foamy, brown-white head. Settles slowly. Very spotty lacing.

S: Sourdough, peach, and mango

T: Light grain, with hints of tropical fruit.

M: Light body. A little bitter and pungent.

D: A little of a sipping brew, although not much resistance.

Atmosphere is decent. Dark hue, foamy head, very slight lacing. Nose is pungent bread with plenty of fruit. Light bready flavor accentuated with tropical fruit. A little bitter and pungent. Overall, this is a pretty good quaff.

Pours dark red with finger width foamy head. Head retention is decent with very little to no lacing. Very fruity aroma. No hops. Peaches and pecans predominate. Very sweet but good. Darker malty taste followed by a mild pecan flavor with a sweet peach taste at the end. Sweet, peachy aftertaste. Wish there was just a little more hops to this. For a sweeter beer, it is actually tasty and would go well with dessert.
