2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at The Farmers Cabinet in Philadelphia, PA.
Pours a very cloudy pineapple juice/banana yellow color with a one finger white head that quickly settles into a thin ring. Not much in the way of lacing. Looks like a milky Berliner Weiss.
Funky, earthy aroma with soily hops and pale malt. Subtle hints of pineapple and grapefruit but it’s kind of one dimensional with overpowering dirty hops.
Medium bodied with slight tartness up front followed by dry, earthy hops that linger over subtle sweetness into a dry soily/earthy finish. Decent amount of bitterness but not too much. More earthy/dirty than anything with strange tartness up front. Sessionable but not very complex. Intersting experiment though.

On tap at Farmer’s Cabinet. Pours a light-medium caramel color with a short white head. The nose carries a pretty large amount of diacetyl along with some faint floral-type hops. Flavor is likewise full of buttered popcorn. Light bread in the background. Medium body. Oddly creamy. Not good at all.
