Ick. Oh no they didn't.
Pours an odd amber hue that is mildly fogged. Soapy nose. Really soapy flavor profile. Candy sweetness which is just not pleasant. I don't like this beer. I don't like it at all.
Too bad I have to end my DC Brau sampling on this one. I'd rather have passed.

Pours a very hazy, dark golden orange with banana yellow edges and a half finger, frothy white head that slowly settles into a thin, lasting ring. Decent retention with sporadic spotty lacing left behind.
Floral, slightly earthy aroma with subtle grassy hops, bready yeast, pale malt and faint light fruit notes. Pretty bland with some piney hops, bread, biscuit, peppery spice, apple and pear.
On the fuller end of medium body with tight carbonation, earthy hops and a prominent peppery spice presence that lingers over the bready yeast, pale malt and light fruit notes into a dry finish. Thankfully this beer tastes more interesting than it smells but the yeast presence is a bit too strong for my preference and it feels more like a wheat/witbier than anything else. Some zesty coriander and grassy, piney hops followed by sourdough bread, bubblegum and lemon zest. Slightly tart and somewhat refreshing but a bit watered down and pedestrian. As it warms, the ester-y light fruit notes start to show with hints of apple, pear and raisin. Still, this beer isn't very complex or interesting. Not bad by any means, but it just doesn't stand out. I'm glad that I only bought a single can.
