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.

11.2oz bottle poured into a pint glass

M: Full-bodied with a light carbonation and a bit of alcohol heat
O: While I wouldn't get it again it's a unique beer and for that reason I'm glad I tried it

10oz glass at the Underground. Good god, but I've been waiting all year for this nascent beer pub to finally, and verily release this particular offering to we plebian sorts.

This beer appears a clear, pale golden yellow colour, with one finger of loosely foamy, and actually rather creamy eggshell white head, which leaves some nice sheer painted lace around the glass as it slowly ebbs away.

It smells of pungent orange liqueur, pine resin, lemon floor cleanser, sweetly floral perfume, and some further independent fruity alcohol. The taste is more citrus cream doctored with vodka, grapefruit and lime rind, lemon drops, wet bready pale malt, and more earthy floral, and well perfumed hops.

The carbonation is quite light, but supportive enough, the body an adequate medium weight, and rather sugary in its smoothness, the alcohol informing here as well. It finishes on the sweet side, the fruitiness, malt, and booze all large and in charge.

A big (if not in gravity, I don't know how that works) strong ale, the perfumed essence going a long way in masking the ABV. Glad I sipped this slowly while enjoying the Monday night steak special, for once.
