notalush (5728) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 20, 2011
Tap at Falling Rock - hazy golden - taste is incredibly phenolic - lots of black pepper and clove, even a touch of banana - quite a bit of tropical fruit sweetness which is a little too high for my tastes - the string phenols do a scent job of covering this up - decent.

The awesome cloudy yellow appearance of this beer wasn’t really evident in the sample as it was in the full beer. Fairly fruity with some noticeable alcohol at the end, it was a pretty tasty beer overall.
