Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

I'm not sure how sad it is, but beer teaches me more about the world than just about any other source. Anyway, this stuff pours a clear sunset ruby-amber topped by over a finger of khaki foam. The nose comprises medicinal cherry dust (which also kinda borders on plum at times...), Belgian candi sugar, light clove, banana, perfume-y flowers, and a smattering of honey. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a touch of coffee in the background and some lightly-toasted biscuit throughout. The body is a straight medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda grainy feel. Overall, I don't feel the cascara really works all that well here, as it seemed to go sideways. Had that strange character not been there, ths probably could've been pretty nice, but c'est la vie, I s'pose.
