3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted @ GJBF Yokohama: Gold, light head and lacing. Nose of fresh malt and a blended pineapple note. Some clean fruit and malt flavors blend like sweet and sour. Good!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
CANDY! Aroma of caramel, pineapple, honey, fruits, and sugar sweetness. Flavor was an inprovement. Pineapple, caramel malts, sugar, some more candied fruits. Finished with a suprisingly hoppy bitterness compared to the rest of the beer. If the rest of the beer had been like the finish this would be a lot better. Syrupy body. I didn’t think it was as bad as TimE did, but it still needs a bunch of work. Interesting.

Deep golden color. Pineapple and caramel candy in the nose. Caramel and pineapple mouth, which as you might guess doesn’t really work. A little sweet and syrupy, but overall flavors just don’t mesh.
