mcberko (9349) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 7, 2013
On tap at CBC, pours a golden with a medium beige head. Aroma of stone fruits and booze -- quite a mess. Flavour brings out loads of stone fruits (peaches especially), a big boozy quality, and turpentine. Not well refined at all, with a hugely boozy palate, and too much turpentine / paint thinner. Sorry Surly, but this one is a failure to me. Not good at all.

Hazy, copper-orange pour with a white head. The aroma has apple, mild citrus, and some earthy notes. It has a full body with a smooth, slick texture and average carbonation. The taste is mildly sweet with a lot of alcohol warmth and a slightly tart finish. I was very impressed with this beer.
