Tap at Barcade. Pours a light golden amber. Nose is spicy with spearmint notes and light peppers an more. Flavor follows that. Nicely carbonates with lively little bubbles. It’s an odd combination of spices which gives this a very exotique flavor. Finish is bright and lively with spice and sweet malt notes. Very interesting.

On tap at Rattle n Hum. Now this is an interesting and unusual brew. I did not know that it was collaboration between Garrett Oliver and a leading Asian chef. I’m always up for trying something like that. This had a fruity aroma and a very spicy flavor. I tasted cola, a barley wine like sweetness, coriander, lots of clove, chewing gum, and licorice. Good, and not like anything else I can think of.

Growler filled at Big Z. Pours a mostly clear gold with a moderate white head that completely disappeared after two or three sips and left very little lace. Pleasant aroma of banana, yeast, and several spices / herbs that I cannot individually identify other than to say there are more than one. The flavor is similar with banana, yeast and a combination of spices and herbs. It wasn’t until I looked at the commercial description that I saw the long list of spices added to this beer, holy crap! Sweet, but not sugary. Bright and lively on the palate. Enjoyable.
