Served from tap in a taster glass at Haymarket.

Bachelor Party-Palooza 2014 (Part 1) finishes the Haymarket stop with a new-to-me brewery and a beer with a ...fruit (???)... I've never heard of. This stuff pours a hazy straw topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises biscuit, light grass, light vague fruits, and a small sprinkling of clove. The taste brings in more of the same, the vague fruits occasionally lashing out in a spike of mild citrus. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, a generally enjoyable beer, kind of a boring-ish BPA with occasional flashes of some sort of fruit. Nothing to write home about, but I could see myself drinking this again sometime down the road.

Had this on tap a little while ago, it's pretty basic and average stuff.
Tulip glass full of hazed orange, a thin broken skim on the surface.

Nebulous and vaguely astringent fruit in the aroma and taste, some faintly sweet malt presence, fruity Belgian yeast esters, crisp feel in general with a dry finish. Utilitarian and ho-hum. Drinkable enough, but in no way as exotic as the name implies. This is far from a "5", the score is highly inflated.

Not really making a great first impression, especially considering the recent truffle beer stunt. Yawn.

Served on tap in Pilsen. The cold press Paw Paw is very apparent without being overpowering. This beer emphasizes sweetness more than Belgian spice, yet it is still balanced. There is very little alcohol present. This beer is certainly original, but it is not screaming for attention. It's subtle in its individuality. A very pleasant beer, especially for summer, and a welcome addition to Chicago's beer scene.
