Opaque straw/yellow color pours a good head that diminishes as the beer is drained from the glass. Flowery aroma with a subtle hint of alcohol. Smooth and creamy body with a faint alcohol yeast taste. Finishes ok as it only starts ok. Next to Lunacy this one blows.

A- A slightly hazy yellow liquid with a few floaters. The white head is thin but fairly creamy looking.

S- Some cooked vegetables, funk, honey, and chamomile. Rather enjoyable.

T- Sweet honey, chamomile, and vegetables. Efficient and clean.

M- Clean and smooth with a very dry aftertaste.

D- A tasty beer that drinks better than most 9.5% ABV beers. A unique taste on the style.
