2.6/5 rDev -35.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5
Pours hazy straw blonde with a fluffy white cap, fine carbonation creeps up the side of my pint glass (ya thats right, I disobeyed the instructions on the cork deliberately, my tulip is sitting dry tonight!) Smells kind of like a bock, sort of metallic, slight hay, sulfurous aromas, not very appealing for me. Taste is bock like, but with a pleasant bitter twang to offset the metallic sulfur notes. Sligh grain flavors, followed by delicate hop presence. Mouthfeel is light, if this were more slick like SN Glissade I'd end up dumping it. Carbonation is medium and prickly, overall not my cup of tea but I'll finish it. Not sure I'd revisit it though. If it werent for the dry bitterness, this beer would be undrinkable for me.

Served in a tulip glass.
A: Pours a hazy straw color, with a thick, three-finger head and intense lacing - leaves a layer of foam on the side of the glass. There is a continuous stream of carbonation from the bottom of the glass.
S: Skunk, bile, soap, followed by hay and a light fruitiness. A very weird smelling brew, indeed. It's almost off-putting, but interesting also.
T: Intense wheat with sour grapes, cherries, bread and yeast. Slightly boozy finish.
M: Simply gorgeous. Redemption coats your mouth with a layer of velvet, with very fine carbonation.
O: Weird smell, yet fantastic taste. The mouthfeel and appearance alone are worth searching this one out.
