1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Head is initially small, fizzy, off-white, mostly diminishing.
Body is dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (cereal, corn/malt syrup), lightly hoppy (herbs), with notes of diacetyl, canned pears, rotting fruit, cotton candy, fusel alcohol, plastic.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter, unclean.
Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic.
Artificial candy nose with plenty of butter for accent and flaws galore...a near cornucopia of unpleasant odors. So sloppy. Itís not even just that itís un-Belgian, this is just plain icky no matter what you call it. Upslopeís worst canned product yet. As much as Iíd like to root for a "home team", itís almost like this place isnít even trying.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can - hazy gold - mostly diminishing head - nose is very sweet - dense sugar, frosting kind of sweetness - there is also a fair amount of banana and off, dirty phenols - watery texture, despite itís rather strong carbonation - very sweet throughout, with a lot of messy, abrasive spiciness - quite a lot of banana and a bit of clove - tastes more like an imperial hefe, but even as one of those, it sucks - I honestly donít know why I keep trying Upslope beers - I had given up on other breweries for burning me far fewer times (Iím looking at you, Asher) - yea, Iím pretty sure Iím done with Upslope.
