Two fingers fo mildly cream white foam for a head, above average retention, leaves large, soapy streaks behind. The bright yellow liquid fully hazy and opaque. The nose overflows with lemon, blood orange and a hint of pink grapefruit, hard for much else to find space, still there's a laser beam of dank leafiness, black tea leaf, some pickle brine, and a decent amount of nectarine, passion fruit, melon scents. The constantly churning carbonation helps it stay medium-bodied while the ultra sweet tropical fruit wants the can to say Del Monte on the label. Nice dollop of pine sap along with oats to temper the tartness. Tangerine, lime, lemon citrus really accelerate through the mid-palate. Vanillin notes surface through the finish. The flavors are deep and resonant, there is absolutely nothing subtle about this beer. Happy to careen along for the ride for one can but would be hard pressed to have a second in a single sitting. (Canned 9/22/21)

16 oz. can.
Canned 10/22/20.

Moderate pour yields a one inch off-white head over a murky body with sticky lacing. Nose of citrus (orange, tangerine) with some floral attributes and a bit of spice. Taste is sweet citrus all the way and finishing with a slight citrus peel bitterness and spice. Also, there is some slightly odd (not in a bad way) flavor, maybe due to the use of the three (oats, wheat, pilsner) malts? Anyway, it has a great feel and overall, a rather pleasant experience while hiding its 10% abv really well.

From a 16oz can, dated 08/08/19. Served in a tulip.

Pours a thick and turbid, dull orange with a scant finger of soft, soapy suds. Retention is so-so-OK leaving a fizzy cap and a thin, slippery sheet of lacing.

Smell is densely malty and juicy with a whiff of vanilla creme.

Taste is... not the sweet malt-bomb I was expecting. Instead it’s mildly tart and a little funky. Lime, guava, kiwi and mildew. Juicy and dank with a funk twist, little detectable malt in the body and virtually zero bitterness.

Feel is smooth and juicy, surprisingly light bodied for its heft and with moderate carbonation.

Overall, a little weird, but not in a totally bad way just, you know, weird. I keep going back and forth on whether or not I taste brett or if I’m just imagining it. I could maybe be convinced that this is an imperial kettle-soured saison but, at 10%, by the time I’ve gotten to summarizing the beer, everything’s getting a little jumbled.
