This beer smells like an outhouse or baby diaper. Even took a survey to those around me and they agreed! It tastes beeter than what it smells like. When not smelling it it tastes more like a sour beer. Not a fan. Had it @ churchky in dc for $2.5 a 4oz. I wouldnt drink it for free.

Bright, clear gold with huge off-white head steadily shrinking to thin foamy top.

Aroma is light, bright clove, pear, grain.

Taste is nice, juicy lemon-herb-clove, with light fruity raisiny-pear sweetness and lemony-herb-peppery bitterness and a hint of pine resin. It has a nice, well-rounded character and feel.
