Pours two fingers of head on a hazy medium straw colored body.
The aroma is tropical fruit forward (mango and pineapple) with some pine and grapefruit in the background.
The taste is nicely balanced. Some pineapple sweetness, a bite of lemon bitterness in the middle and finishes on a little honey sweet note.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
It has great balance in both smell and flavor.

Notched "October" on the side.

Into a pint glass:

A: semi-dark red/brown colored body with a two finger white foamy head that slowly settles to leave a decent amount of adequate foamy lacing, tries to spider web but has a gentle looking cohesiveness in the display of it

S: this is actually a wretched smell I'm sorry to say, a bland sort of onion unappealing dankness, no malts, no hops, just plain bland dankness

T: it tries to come back from the bad smell as I did get some dried and somewhat roasty malts, but the aftertaste brings back that dank unappealing onion-ness, dry onion finish

M: light to medium, but not really sessionable, carbonation was actually really smooth

O: I think I would only try this again if I could try to find it fresher, but that smell tells me this poor boy has expired.
