Aroma is not particularly strong, but has a good fruity note and yeasty and hoppy hints. Pours a clear straw yellow with a thick white head. Flavor has a good hoppy note, a whisper of fruity sweetness, and a strong alcohol nip. Definitely quite dry! Texture has smooth, decent body and a fair amount of fizz. Watch out, this one will sneak up on you like a cat! Not great, but interesting.

Starts off looking decent with a straight pour, but things really get interesting when you actually drink it! A beautiful and subtle aroma, without being pungent or bitter hits your nose immediately. The coloring is a golden amber, which is very beautiful and just a light trace of carbonation of lace, beautifully done. It is sweet, but not too sweet for a brew with this high of alcohol content and is remarkably smooth. Bought it on a whim and am very impressed. Beautifully clean taste, as smooth as smooth can be for a beer this high in alcohol content. If you see it, buy it!

It certainly looks like a light beer, fizzy and yellow with a thin, weak off-white cap that actually forms something that sets up for the long haul, small as it is, and does manage average spotting.
Spicy, fruity, and lightly grainy with something like (sugared) aloe vera juice, the aroma attempts balance with dry hay and citrus, but its main aspects are boozy and sweet, like a strangely flavored fruit vodka. It's mostly heat and sweetness, but at least I get a hint of earth from malts and some floral hops. I can't overstate the booziness, but it's okay.
I don't know what to make of this flavor. It's all over the place. It's too sweet, it's too hot, it's too messy; it honestly doesn't make a lot of sense. The best I can say is that the actual beer-like qualities aren't completely lost in the monstrousness, which is saying something.
The body is too light, it's a bit too fizzy, it's sharp and biting as all hell. It almost hurts to drink it. That said, it calms down before too long. It's never clean, though, and the sting remains harsh.

What? Why? It's not worth it just to say you did it.

Poured into a wine glass. Great carbonation, some yeast. I get aroma of pineapple, booze, like being in a brewery. Taste is great, like a barelywine. Citrus, orange and lemon rinds. I shared this one, and even then it is a sipper at 14%. As it warms up, the booze really comes out. Very interesting beer. I would get this again and consider aging to see what a couple years would do.
