Beige head reveals notes of Belgian yeast and sweet currants. Taste is blasé with nothing being dominant or amazing. If I was pearl jam I’d ask th to call it something different because their music is 100 times better than this beer.

This had to be one of the biggest disappointments. Bitter astringency with some Belgian yeast flavors and maybe a dollop of malt sweetness coming through with a closing bite of rubbing alcohol

...got it for 5$ at an end of the world party. Glad I didn’t buy it. Slightly fruity aroma, but no flavor. Tasted like a weak Belgian with a dry finish.:

Serving: 750 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a clear gold color with a large white head. The nose has a bit of grain and berry to it. The flavor reminds me of a grainy blonde ale with a slight currant and berry undertone. Not particularly remarkable. Light in body with higher carbonation. I don’t get the Belgian influence or much from the currants.
