look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

One of those beers you need to be prepared for or get used to. Actually quite drinkable (found myself sipping away); but a little limited in scope.

A: Mostly whiteish head evaporates ASAP; leaving a look of Cherry Coke with ice already melted. Little grains of sand dot the surface (or, if agitated, some faint striation).

S: Vanilla extract and banana bread. Caramel. Spiked flan!

T: Honestly, a little off-putting at first -- very cream-sodaish. Taste follows nose (see above). Very pleasing, non-bitter aftertaste. Seems a one-trick pony: brewers tried hard to be unique (when "unique" doesn't always equate to successful).

M: Fine. Holds together OK; soft, buttery, light body. But again, a little off-putting because so sweet and mild.

O: Easy enough to drink, and unique experience. Worth a try; wouldn't turn down another. Just wouldn't seek to stock my refrigerator with it. I suspect it's good for what it is; just not sure I'm a big fan of "what it is"...

Repeat? Not as a staple, but does fill a niche -- after dinner with dessert, campfire with s'mores, just after downing a giant poppyseed muffin!

Two Words: Spike Flan
