3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at SPH. Pours a hazy brown orange with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet fruits and caramel malt. Smells quite sugary (like a strawberry dipped in sugar). Flavor is also quite sweet, like pound cake, with some lemony and fruity notes. But the sugar predominates. Hmm, this is a one-dimensional beer I really canít get into.

Bottle at the Funky 8, Brooklyn, NYC. Really, really sweet. Tons of dark sugars, fruits, rich bread. Not altogether bad, but a bit cloying and it would be tough to take down more than a small serving.
