This unusual beer is a clear, flaming coppery red with a sheen all through it. A solid creamy crown reaches a full finger with good hold and shows some structure by managing its height for a good while even as it leaves lots of frothy lace sticking to the glass.
This is as interesting an aroma as I would expect from the list of ingredients; the distinct notes that greet my nose are sugar, mineral and a sort of stemmy note that's sweeter so there's no pith or wood to it. It's not monstrously sweet but those sugars do get pretty heady. There's some dryness to the malt adding some balance, biscuity with some earth as well, and the subtlest hint of grass and leaf.
The flavor is sugary up front with grains toasted to the edge of char. There's a spicy bite, some citrus peel, a bit more earth, and then everything's overshadowed by sweetness again as notes of bruised fruits both pale and dark as well as brown sugar plow into the finish.
The feel offers a nice smoothness with soft crispness accompanying it in a medium body.

Served in a champagne flute at Fountainhead.

To commemorate the end of the 13th baktun, 5 Rabbit brewed up this beer, which translates into "tasty start", with chanterelle mushrooms, toasted oats, Rakau hops, dark Thai palm sugar, and a Belgian yeast strain. Nice. It pours a hazy amber-honey topped by a finger of khaki foam. The nose comprises biscuit, grass, orange zest, and light Belgian candi sugar. The taste brings in more of the same, with the zest coming through more rind-y, and with some earthy greens really coming to the fore (I'm assuming this is the mushrooms' influence?). The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation, a sorta/kinda smooth feel, and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, a pretty nice beer, one that comes together fairly nicely despite the seemingly disparate nature of its component ingredients.
