Had this in October 2019 during the New England trip. Had it at the source. First review of this beer on BA.

Pours one of those ugly hazy kind of diluted turkey gravy lookin' beers, but it has a nice 1/2" dense white head on it. Holy shit the smell. So the commercial tug job is about all this dole whip bullshit, but instead the aroma reminded me of some seriously funky shit you'd get in some barnyard ales. Feed a baby a bunch of blue cheese and rotten pineapple, and the diaper will smell like this. Damn.

Thankfully the taste was much better. I think the lactose addition helped smooth out the overripe (to say the least) pineapple notes (Galaxy hops picked and left somewhere to grow mold would make sense) and it hid the alcohol relatively well. The amazing thing about this was how much the smell turned me off, but I was able to drink the entire pour no problem and even enjoyed it no less. Flaked alterno-malt bill done right. Thanks for the shoutout on the podcast yesterday DDB!
