I thought I had ticked this "Beer of Fame," but I guess not.
Served in a Delirium Tremens shaped-glass.
A: Poured a bright, yet murky orange color, with a pillowy, cloud-like formation posing as a head on top.
S: Coriander and orange peel upfront, followed by some banana pudding, and candy component reminiscent of "Pixie Stick" dust.
T: The finish on this is really harsh and not entirely pleasant to my taste buds. A bit too alcoholic, and a bit too grainy and bitter for my liking. I think that if some pepper were added to the overall profile, it might have been more fun and interesting.
M: I dug the carbonation bill.... very spritzy and champagne-like, but the bitter lingering was substantial. A good bit of lacing on the glass.
O: It's been years since I've tried this one, but I remember not really caring much for it back in the day either. To each his or her own, I guess.
