Pours a strangely-colored head. Color is dark cloudy amber. Also, a couple big particles coming up to the surface, hopefully a good thing? Smell is buttery sweet. First sip is quite interesting, almost like a crust in the mouthfeel and the flavor of the beer. This really is kind of like having a Ben and Jerry's pint in beer form. A little tart, although I expect it could be a little more. Still, I think this is another example of Shorts going onto the cutting edge on par with their Strawberry Shorts Cake. Sweet, Fruity, nice.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 6/18/2014. Pours slightly hazy orange amber color with a 1 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Slight spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of tart lime, biscuit, graham cracker, toast, vanilla, cream, light caramel, and herbal earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of bready malt, lime, lactose, and other adjunct notes with light hop presence; and solid strength. Taste of lightly tart lime, biscuit, graham cracker, toast, vanilla, cream, light caramel, and herbal earthiness. Light tartness and minimal earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lime, biscuit, graham cracker, toast, vanilla, cream, light caramel, and herbal earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and complexity of bready malt, tart limes, lactose, and other adjunct flavors; with a great malt/adjunct balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and slightly slick/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice experimental fruit beer. All around well balanced and nicely robust bready malt, lime, lactose, and other adjunct flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

A - pours a orange / amber with a finger of off white head. Nice spotty lace after each drink.

S - malts, cookies, vanilla, faint fruity lime.

T - Malt forward, graham crackers, cake batter, lime comes through in the back end. Flavors don't come together.

O - Shorts never disappoints for creativity, but this one falls short of the mark. Drinks more like a malt bomb than a fruity brew. I wish it had more lime and less malts.
