Pours a hazy copper. The 1/4 inch off-white head quickly fades to a thin cap on top that leaves faint spots of lace. There is visible floating sediment.

The smell is of grains with a hint of strawberry and a faint funky finish.

The taste is of wheat bread, strawberries and a faint banana aftertaste reminiscent of a Belgian dubbel.

The texture is medium bodied with low carbonation.

An interesting effort here with it's grainy taste, strawberry accents and a faint banana and spice presence that could pass for something Belgian.

Pours a murky dark orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Small chunks of sediment are seen floating around in the beer after the pour. Smell is of malt, strawberry jam, and strawberry candy aromas. Taste is much the same with toast, earth, strawberry jelly, and alcohol flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a below average beer that smells pretty decent, but the taste is a boozy mess of dirty strawberry flavors.

Serving type: bottle.
