4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at the 2006 Nebraska Craft Brewers tasting. Pours rich golden in color with a creamy thick white head. An intense cascade of bubbles moves upward. This brew has some crazy fruity aromas and even a bit of cotton candy. The taste is a full, full sweet flavor of apples and apricots. The medicinal backdraft is quite impressive to this beer. It think it is masterful. Has a whopping 10% abv. This is Dean’s masterpiece so far at Jobber’s. The mouth is a gauze-pack of thickness. The thick reams of lacing band the top of the glass. has an esophageal burn that lingers and sloughs the epithelium. Bubble gum! The only mistake might be a slight astringency to the finish, but this is hardly noticeable. This is a sweet beer, but the sweetness is barely pronounced due to the amalgam of other flavors. I think this would be a better fit if described as a Tripel.
