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.
