Notes / Commercial Description:
We brewed this beer with the man, the myth, the legend, P. Adam Vavrick, beer manager at Binny's LP. It's a wit beer brewed with lots of juicy strawberries and pounds of tart, tangy kiwis. It's a great summer fruited beer. Paradisiac was originally brewed as a one-off for an event at Norse Bar, but we liked it so much we're making it for a second time. This beer is named after Adam. Lots of people don't know this, but Adam's first name is really Paradisiac. Ha! We're kidding. But it is named after one of Adam's favorite songs.

Bottle portrays some pointy-toothed, Marilyn Manson lookin'-like cartoon dude with a jester hat and a hand of fruit and throwing weapon cards. Okay Jeff, what the fuck?? Haha. Haven't been this freaked out by a label since Vas Deferens. *shudder*

Appearance. Pours a rich, hazy, honey-peach with a very thin head that fades almost immediately.

Smell. Red berries, oranges, lime and kiwi, sweet wheat and some sweet gingerbread spice. A little bit of fruity yeast as well.

Taste. Nice tangy red berry sourness, belgian yeast and spices ...spices that aren't in your face and overpowering beyond anything else in the beer. Huh. Anyways, there's a touch of sweet wheat there, some tart kiwi. Nice an sour and refreshing.

Mouthfeel. Medium+ body, medium amount of fine carbonation.

Overall. These Pipeworks guys don't know how to brew a spiced beer. They need to learn to dump that shit in there by the bucket like it's hops in Younger Pliny's Sunshine or something. Jeeze.

Thanks Jeffo!
