UPDATED: JAN 18, 2016 I could drink of bunch of these. I could also go on about taste and aroma and other stuff (which I do appreciate) but I must put this beer in the context of time. I am watching a Phish show live stream on TV. I cant help wondering, if deadheads had this technology would they do the same? I drank this beer throughout the show and it was truly wonderful. So cheers! Cheers to Ninkisi and cheers to Phish. Thanks for all you both do. Cause both you rule the universes in which you preside.

Like any other Helles, but with a touch of gasoline and lingering tannic flavors. I don’t really recommend this.
