Notes: Ok, say it with us: vanilla, chocolate, strawberry..........sour. We can hear some of you now, in the immortal words of Michelle Tanner, "No way, Jose." Well we're here to say: yes, way.

Strawberry and vanilla dominate up-front, after which the subtlety of the chocolate starts to emerge, ending in a finish that, in the words of our amazing QC stud Cory, "Reminds of hiding behind the couch as a kid, trying to slurp down the last bit of melted ice cream that you stole from the freezer.

L: Poured from a tallboy can to a snifter glass. Had a reddish / orange color and a cloudy consistency. There was a foamy / fizzy head that quickly dissipated. Not much lacing to speak of.

S: A super sweet aroma of berries, chocolate, vanilla, and malt.

T: Tasted of a good bit of vanilla (more than expected), a tinge of malt (not a big factor; kind of gets overwhelmed by the other ingredients), a lot of strawberries (the dominant element), and some chocolate (mostly in the finish, but definitely present). Like the aroma, the flavor's quite sweet, but not cloying. Interesting, lively, and pretty tasty.

F: A well-carbonated beer with a vibrant finish. Medium-bodied.

O: Kind of a novelty beer, but still well made. Drinkable.

31 March 2020 - Beer #63

Corona Day #19

Price: $7.00 at Bailey's Taproom in Portland, OR

Appearance: 3 - looks like an adjunct lager, just a bit brighter. Head fizzled away immediately.

Nose: 4 - wow, it DOES smell like fruity ice cream! I don't get chocolate, but there's definitely strawberry and vanilla. Not a very strong aroma, though.

Taste: 4 - sour with just a bit of the mentioned flavors. Nice, but not the blast of flavor I was hoping for.

Mouth: 4 - nice acidity, and gets frothy as you chew it. Nicely brewed.

Overall: 4 - nothing to write home about, but plenty refreshing.

Stay safe out there, team.

Cheers!

16 oz can- Pours hazy light orange with almost no head, like the color otherwise a pretty ugly beer. Aroma is creamy, orange creamsickle, some berries, and fake chocolate. The flavor is similar, fake chocolate, berries and orange vanilla, mild to moderate sourness. Unimpressed.

Hazy pale amber-orange with a pearlescent bubbly white head, this sour has a strongly cheesy lactic note to it, much like cheesecake, in an unexpectedly unpleasant way. It's not disgusting, but it makes it much less drinkable. Tart orange and strawberry claw their way up with the soft effervescence with some ease, but the cheesecake is always there.
