16 oz can poured into a tulip pint glass. Pours a muddy brownish-red. Not appealing. Smells and tastes like strawberry jelly with some peanut butter, milk chocolate, and way too much sweet marshmallow. Not entirely undrinkable. About the only redeeming feature is the relatively low 5.2% abv; otherwise, there's no way I would have finished it.

A: Pours a murky brownish purple in color with light to moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and moderate ruby red + purple + amber colored highlights. The beer has a two finger tall soapy sudsy foamy tan head that quickly reduces to a medium sized patch of very thin film covering a little less than 30% of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of slightly sour wheat + bready malts with moderate amounts of sugary sweetness and moderate aromas of peanut butter + grape jelly. Hints of Fluff (marshmallow).

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavors of bready + slightly sour wheat malts with a moderate amount of sugary sweetness and a hint of lacto lemon citrus tartness. That is followed by light flavors of Fluff (marshmallow) and moderate flavors of peanut butter + grape jelly. Light amounts of lingering tartness in the finish.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth with a light amount of acidic prickliness.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and just enough acidic tartness in the mouthfeel. Enjoyable and really delivers on the promised flavors and aromas. I’m not sure how they did it but this beer initially smelled just like a peanut butter + jelly + Fluff sandwich that you pulled out of your backpack on a hot day at summer camp and tasted like it as a beer (even that less than stellar slightly sweet wheat bread from the 1980s).
