A: Clearish reddened copper. There’s very little head from this pour and the beer looks remarkably still.

N: Banana, cranberry, cheese, dough, and some leather. Doesn’t smell terribly tart, nor is there much oak. Plenty of funk, though. Lots of that for you to enjoy.

T: Sweet like banana and a minor level of tartness to break up the sugars. Some oak and funk lingers on this one. Has kind of a molasses-barbecue aspect.

M: Well carbonated with a lighter body. Lingers on the palate with a nice warmth.

O: A cross between the New Glarus fruit beers and a wild ale. Might be fallen off a bit, as I’m not sure when this was originally brewed. I do like it and would have it again. Just expect something much sweeter and fruitier.
