Bottle portrays some pointy-toothed, Marilyn Manson lookin'-like cartoon dude with a jester hat and a hand of fruit and throwing weapon cards. Okay Jeff, what the fuck?? Haha. Haven't been this freaked out by a label since Vas Deferens. *shudder*

Appearance. Pours a rich, hazy, honey-peach with a very thin head that fades almost immediately.

Smell. Red berries, oranges, lime and kiwi, sweet wheat and some sweet gingerbread spice. A little bit of fruity yeast as well.

Taste. Nice tangy red berry sourness, belgian yeast and spices ...spices that aren't in your face and overpowering beyond anything else in the beer. Huh. Anyways, there's a touch of sweet wheat there, some tart kiwi. Nice an sour and refreshing.

Mouthfeel. Medium+ body, medium amount of fine carbonation.

Overall. These Pipeworks guys don't know how to brew a spiced beer. They need to learn to dump that shit in there by the bucket like it's hops in Younger Pliny's Sunshine or something. Jeeze.

Thanks Jeffo!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

750 ml bottle, with handwritten Batch #173 written on the label. Finally decided to pick this one up after looking at it for quite a while.

Poured into a Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a bright golden colored body with four plus big fizzy fingers of off-white head that audibly sizzles it's way out of existence entirely. Some yeast sediment visible in the glass. Looks very nice. Pours a darker murkier color as the bottle goes on.

S - The smell is very nice - some funky Belgian yeast presence, vinous grapey wine-like character, and some fruitiness, but I would probably never guess strawberries or kiwis without knowing.

T - Taste follows the nose nicely, but better. Tart / sour fruity character imparted from the strawberry and kiwi. Definitely tastes like more of a sour to me at this point than it does a Belgian wit, but it's delicious nonetheless. Becomes much more yeasty tasting as the bottle goes on.

M - Feel is crisp, lightly dry, and mildly tart. Medium light bodied with good carbonation.

Overall, another wonderful beer from Pipeworks. Glad I finally picked this one up, and I look forward to trying their other variations on the wit beer.

Pipeworks Paradisiac ---4/5.
