First had: on tap at Farmers' Cabinet, Philly, PA

Part of an 8-beer series brewed by Evil Twin with Terry of Cabinet Artisanal, for Philly Beer Week 2012, that was further part of the 3x8 series that included Cabinet and Stillwater. Each of the three brewers took a base beer and "tweaked" it in 8 different ways. The "kini" series used Bikini as a base, and was brewed at 10 IBU intervals from 10-80.

Burkini was 70 IBUs.

I've gotta say, these beers were not too impressive, and all basically tasted the same, with extremely subtle differences in taste. I tried a few, but considering their similarities, I probably won't review them all.

Served in a mini-stem glass, a cloudy yellow color with a small wispy head. Looks fine enough. Like its counterparts, the aroma is hop-dominant, with a twinge of ammonia, slight notes of pale biscuity malts. Taste of light fruits, pear, melon, hints of citrus zest, grassy, with a hit of metallic bitterness in the finish. Light body, and a little on the watery side, which can be expected with such a low ABV. Fairly sessionable, but not very desirable overall.
