3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL bottle pours with a crystal clear deep gold body that has copper hues and supports an initially creamy metallic tan head that somehow dissipated into a loose head and then nothing in under a minute. The aroma offers up various Belgian yeasty spices as well as rich malt sweetened apple and plum and slightly over ripe nectarine. The taste begins smooth and sweet with loads of apple and apricot and peach honey coating fruity esters that meld at about midway into a pleasing nectar like quality. Then the yeasty spices and holiday fruit cake spice punch takes over only to head right into a bit of booziness. All in all this is working pretty well for me and I think another 10 to 12 months of age might see some further blending and melding of the flavors into something even more enjoyable than it is right now.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured lightly hazy from a bomber bottle, amber color, with a small but durable off-white head. Vinegar (or similar) in the very sour aroma: smells like a good marinade ... or a bad beer. Well, the taste is similar, but perhaps a bit worse. There is some pineapple in the very tart taste. Medium bitterness.
O: brewer’s description sounds wonderful; the beer is not. Hard to drink despite some attractive aspects.

Not my fave style but thought it was done well enough to be part of the series. One would think with the center of the song to be HUGE then the brew should be HUGE. Not.
