A: Clear golden pour with minimal head and lacing

S: Peaches, honey, mango and some barnyard funk. Sweet but not overdone.

T: Fuzzy and fizzy peach and honey. Brett is present but not overdone. Alcohol is well hidden.

M: Smooth, prickly mouthfeel. Medium carbonation, dry finish with a slight alcohol bite.

O: A nice change of pace for this IPA hound.. I will definitely try more of the style and more of this guy...very drinkable and tasty. Cheers!

Poured into snifter.

A Orangish/amber. Thick white head. Lacing remains to the end.

S Very aromatic. Cider. Cloves. Apples. Peach. Cinnamon. Big hit of pepper and citrus fruit peel.

T Tangy. Cidery. Not so much peachy as it is citrusy and zesty. I'm getting more sweet apple than I am peach. But there is some hint of peach. Big boozy finish.

M Foamy (halfway down and there is still head). Finishes with a hard alcohol kick.

O Wow! I was not expecting to like this as much as I do. Good complex flavor. Tart and sweet. Boozy but nor overwhelming. Aroma is awesome. This is a really good beer in the series.

Been waiting for some time now to try out this Musical Molasses! Bought in California, but drank in Korea, chillin' for quite a while in my 'fridge, it just struck me one Sunday afternoon that the time had come!

Poured from a deuce-deuce into an IPA-style glass, with any regards to fuckin' around left behind on the trans-Pacific flight. The beer itself came out a light hue, with minimal head, which in other realms, is unacceptable, but here, fit the bill perfectly. Settled nicely into the the transitory glass, before it was transferred to my mind, body, and soul.

The smell segued into the taste, with odes to flora adequately compensated for, the whole process through. There were hints of olfactory from the brewery in Colorado, touches of taste from the streets of Philadelphia, and of course a combination of the two, from where all things worthwhile converge, in California.

The 9.4% certainly didn't go unnoticed, although it was beautifully masked behind the scents and tastes associated with this fine brew. Likewise, it paired well with the 1995 album, "Coast To Coast Motel", which was in turn, the perfect accompanying soundtrack to this ale.

Overall, as expected, a journey through musical time and taste, showcasing the genius in this wonderful series put out by New Belgium...
