2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rating #5600 - in French Polynesia with a beer from Hawaii (carried there)
Deep muddied brown coloured body with a ruby glow and a nice violet coloured tint as well. Aroma of toasted malt, candy sugar, oranges, apricots and a good deal of yeast - but the malt is still by far the strongest. Medium to Full-bodied; Pungent toasted malt characteristics up front with yeast, fruit, nuts, earth, alcohol and tons of caramel noticeable throughout. Aftertaste shows caramel, toffee, earth, malts and alcohol with a good deal of yeast on the finish. Overall, a funky and interesting beer that shows almost no belgian characteristics except for a bit of the sugars and some of the end of the yeast flavours, but this is more of a Strong American or a typical brown ale. I sampled this really odd and tall sized 568 mL can that either has to have more than 568 mils or was only filled up part way, but it didn’t seem that way from the feeling of the beer or the pour. I sampled this can purchased from the Kona Wine Market in Kona-Kailua on 10-August-2016 for the very expensive US$8,10 sampled in my overwater bungalow in Pape’ete, Tahiti, French Polynesia on 19-August-2016 on my last night before returning home to the USA, for rating #5600!

I'm wondering if this is better on draft, because from the tall boy can its metallic as all get out.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz. can from Safeway in Lahaina. Unusual musty aroma from a very hazy orange/brown body with almost no head. Nutty, slightly roasted malt taste along with a juicy pineapple sweetness. The flavor is kind of muddled and disjointed. Leaves a sweet, sugary taste along with a bit of the nut flavor. It gets better as you drink it, but it’s still not very good.
