3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
An interesting although thoroughly confusing beer. In the end I find this tastes more like sour cherry than anything else, bordering on a flanders red.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle purchased at Craft Beer Cellar, Nashua. Paper label over the bottle is stamped 7 April 2014. Orange color with thin head, aroma is sugar coated bananas, malted wheat and light spivey notes.
Flavor is alright, sweet notes of caramelized plantains, notes of wheat grain and straw. The mouthfeel is creamy with the lactose sugar giving a smoothness. I appreciate the creativity and the brew is most drinkable.

Pours clear deep dark gold into a tulip. Off-white head with good retention recedes leaving spider lacing. Sourdough and mild bruised banana aromas. Sweet and sharp with boozy bread, caramel and nuts upfront turning quickly sour in a nasty rotten way. I wanted to like this one, but I don’t think I’m going to be able to finish a glass.
