Pours a clear amber color with a pure white head. Not getting any retention or lacing. Head was gone in seconds.

The aroma is pure copper. It's almost like an old, wet penny smell. I get some cereal grains on the back end. It's like Wheaties with pennies in the bowl. Not pleasant.

The taste has a faintly tart flavor on the front, with a slightly metallic taste in the middle. Back end is back to tartness with a bit of grain.

The feel is medium-light bodied with low carbonation. Smooth and dry. Lingering bitterness on the back end.

Overall a pretty poor beer. It looks like tea, smells like pennies and tastes like sour metal. Perhaps I had an off batch but this is definitely not a beer I'd try again.

Pours copper color with a thin white head. The aroma is dank and Dijon mustard. Pretty wild, but i get a lot of Dijon. I asked the bartender to see if I was hallucinating. He said it smelled like Dijon to him too. Medium body and carbonation. Tastes mildly sour with some bread and caramel. Overall pretty good. Definitely unique and worth a try at least once.
