Flavor is light banana, graham cracker, pineapple. Weird combination of flavors thatís a tad messy. KInd of a chalky, lightly bitter mouthfeel. Weird beer. Tastes kind of numb if that makes any sense.

Growler fill from 9th Ave Vintner. Pours into goblet a rusty red bordering on brown. Not a lot of head. Aroma is sugary maple syrup. Palate is noticeably sweet with decent carbonation in the mouthfeel. Earthy, spicy and vegetable notes and major malty notes. Grainy early on. Still a very light mouthfeel and very much winter. Decent.
