Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. Cellared for one year.
A- Pours a hazy orangeish amber color with a 1/4 inch beige head that's short-lived and soon fades to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a sheer sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a thick ring behind.
S- Moderate amount of yeasty barnyard funk plus some orange zest, candi sugar and booze.
T- Whoa, you can really taste the pineapple juice. It's actually like drinking a pineapple juice liquor cocktail but just a bit more complex with some yeast and a tad bit of malt at work. Some other flavors come out as a result like mango and orange but it's just full-on pineapple juice through most of the ride. Things become more enjoyable as it warms but I think it's just because I do like pineapple juice.
M- A bit sharp and acidic but not in a very good way since the booze also adds to the bite and creates a discordance. Medium-low carbonation with a lightish body.
O- About as one-dimensional as it gets. Drinkable, but easily the most disappointing in The Bruery's Christmas beer series.
