Crushed with Jakebra. Woo! Poopy bananas, hay, sour malt on the nose. Not very good in the flavor, though it is a slight improvement. Not a good beer.

Disgusting. I must admit I was warned by one of the clerks at the beer store. I thought, how bad can it be. It’s bad. And, as I noticed right before opening it, it was bottled over 6 months ago. Nose begins with a bit of apple and pear and a very dry yeast, but gets gross pretty quickly. Taste is terrible from start to finish. Not very drinkable. I like heemer’s comment, it is similar to drinking sweat, only sweat tastes better.
