12oz can from Brewers Haven. Murky, peach colored pour, fizzy head. Peanut butter first in the aroma, light sweet jelly notes. Taste brings them together into a liquid PB & J sandwich, fruity and nutty with mild tartness. Really good.

a peanut butter and jelly sour, this should be gross right? i thought though, heck, if anyone can do it, its these guys, based on some of the other crazy flavors this series has produced. its actually pretty good, i mean thoroughly weird, but good weird, and all who tasted the can thought about the same, as well done as something like this pretty much can be. the strawberry in it is very jammy indeed, sweet but natural enough, and the peanut butter is creamy and rich and obvious without making this greasy or gross. its weird that the sourness doesnt make it yucky, its the same clean slightly citric tang all of these have, and it works oddly well with these unconventional beer flavors. the beer could be a little more well refined, so many of these have just been packed with chunky sediment and this one is definitely ugly hazy and dull in the glass, cant hold a head, the same old issues, maybe its necessary for flavor, but these seem sloppy until you taste them most of the time. the malt has a sort of graham cracker thing to it, almost a bread crust of the sandwich sort of vibe in this context, and the peanut butter and strawberry elements both love it, not too sugary, pleasantly drinkable, and a success, even though the beer itself is flat and messy. cool project, dying to know what they think up next!

edit: after letting another can of this sit in the fridge about a month, it seems improved somehow, like its a lot nicer looking in the glass, i was careful to keep the sediment in the can, but it seems more carbonated and refined too, still sweet, but less so i think, even the peanut butter part seems more well integrated, somehow just better to me now, maybe just because of the less sediment, but i am improving a few scores here now. possibly just too fresh for this sort of thing when it was brand new...
