Served on tap in a pint glass

Pours crystal clear golden color with no head whatsoever. The beer was not as I expected. There is a subtle oily hop presence with an earthy onion like flavor. The body of the beer is dominate by dark fruit flavors and grape in particular. This beer is somewhat sweet and quite floral in a tropical sense. The body is surprisingly think and has a nice feel to it. Hides the alcohol quite well. Overall, pretty darn good and very darn different.

A - Pours a very murky gold with a two finger white head. Left a decent amount of lacing.

S - Smells like mustard up front, a lot of pepper and clove, along with wheat. Definitely weird.

T - Once again, mustard up front, followed by some pepper and hay. Finished with some bubblegum.

M - Medium bodied with heavy carbonation.

O - Overall, this is the weirdest beer I have ever had. I'm giving it a solid three because I'm simply not sure what to think about it.
