look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Pous a murky golden yellow color with three fingers of head and nice spider web lacing.

The aroma is of yeast and pear up front with some musty straw underneath. Wet dog and bananas. Rubber and flowers as well. Nice.

The flavor is dominated by spices on the front palate and a very musty grass/banana/yeast/rubber combination on the finish. Some noticeable booze.

The body is medium to light and carbonation is high but soft.

Overall this is a decent beer but I can't use any words better than that. There are a couple of off-flavors that bring down the overall package and the high ABV is too noticeable for the lighter flavor profile.
