A: this pint is amber-gold with a frothy white head, and considerable haze. It is also visually viscous. The bubbles, while enthusiastic at first, are weighed down by the massive thickness of this brew.
S: definitely some high alcohols here. Bubblegum, rose, and tropical fruit are prevalent.
T: the most obvious flaw in this brew is its lack of attenuation. It is much too sweet, with little bitterness to balance it out. Also, the fermentation byproducts are out of control.
M: thick, sticky, unappetizing.
D: I admire the innovation, but this definitely needs some adjuncts to thin it out, and a cleaner fermentation. I can't really recommend this to anyone.
Serving type: on-tap
