A huge thanks to my friend Schmittymack for kindly sharing this one with me last Friday night. Poured a hazy golden color with a white head. Aromas of earthy hops, grain and breadiness. On the palate, this one was light to medium bodied, nicely tart, with flavors of earthy hops, straw and bread. Much better than I anticipated; I would buy this one in regular Sam Adams six packs.

Poured from bottle into tulip glass

A - Beer poured with a copper hue (brown); one finger white foam formed; foam dissipated pretty quickly; the body of the beer remained clear from start to finish

S - Scent of high ABV, spice (coriander) come up with hints of malts and hops; crisp clean smell; sweet aroma of fruits on back-end shared with liquor tones; the beer has a malt liquor smell

T - Not too much taste on the front of the tongue; soft spiced beer in the middle with a malty/bourbon high ABV finish on the back of the tongue; nice mixture of highly complex ingredients

M - bubbly like a champagne wine; accompanied by a slight creamy mouthfeel' smooth down the hatch

D - This beer was definitely worth the two-year wait; I enjoyed every sip of this one; a celebratory beer, should be shared on special occasions and best served during the holidays; SA and Weihenstephan should collaborate again to make another brew

Pours a clear light caramel color and there is a one inch bright white head that forms on the pour. It quickly dissipates leaving nothing behind.

The aroma is decent. There is a large malt presence with notes of bread and caramel. There is also a decent yeast quality available as well.

The taste is interesting. Again there is a nice malt presence with bread and caramel. There is a bit of spicey yeast available as well.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a large efforvescent bubble.

Overall I think it's a great beer. I'm suprised everyone is rating it so poorly. I think maybe it's difficult for many beer nerds to grasp the concept? It's an odd style for one, and I doubt most of us have that much to compare it to, I myself only can compare it to Deus. I largely prefer Infinium between the two, but both were a great experience.

IMO this is one to be enjoyed with friends. It's a large format of an odd style to try and take out by yourself although it would be easy to do. Just come into this beer with an open mind and enjoy the experience. A very special thanks to Sam Adams and Weihnstephan for producing a moderately priced odd beer style for us to have. It was a great experience.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a golden yellow with an amazing 3 finger white head, unfortunately the head does fairly quickly

S: Smells amazingly fruity, with some grassy and citrus hops

T: Pretty much the same as the smell. The alcohol is actually very well hidden behind the fruitiness and carbonation... that is until it has warmed up a little. Once it's not fridge temp, the alcohol is definitely there

M: Fairly light, highly carbonated

D: One of these is good for me, especially considering the price. Not a bad beer at all, in fact much better than some of the reviews I've read. Glad I waited until New Years Eve/New Years to pop it open
