Faithfull Ale is a celebration of Pearl Jam’s 20th anniversary and their seminal album Ten – In recognition of these milestones this Belgian-style golden ale is delicately hopped to 20 IBUs and fruit-forward from 10 incremental additions of black currants over the course of the one hour boil.

Bottle shared at California 10k event. Pours golden with white head. Taste was honey, esters and sweet

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a Spiegelau tulip. A: Strong currants and berry notes with a hint of pomegranate. Delicate bready sweetness sweetness in the back.with pineapple esters. A: Bright, clear orange under a bready off-white head which dissipates slowly and leaves minimal lacing. T: Like the nose, fruity, like currants, with a solid bready, yeasty malt backbone. Strong frozen currants notes in the finish. P: Medium-bodied with a slick texture and average mouth-carbonation, O: Different. Initially, proroguing as the fruity currants are a relatively unfamiliar taste. Smooths out as it warms, I certainly love to concept of a tribute beer, so much so that it carries the flavor somewhat.

12/1/2011. 750 ml. bottle. Poured golden with a white head. Fruity aromas with light malt and yeast. Seem a bit light and lacking flavors. One to drink and forget.

A: Hazy Golden Straw Hue, Passes Most Light, Mild White Head Ring, Almost No Lacing S: Light Belgian Sugar, Mild Grape T: Light Belgian Sugars, Mild Currants M: Average Carbonation, Light to Medium Bodied, Mildly Dry Overall, a weak belgian strong ale...if this beer was called by a different name (ie Miller) then I might have a better appreciation for it. Not Recommedned especially for 17.99 per bomber.

DoublEE (781) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - SEP 12, 2013
a soft vanilla flavor to begin. very soft. some citrus notes as well. maybe more of a limeyness than a lemon. softer flavors too. pear and a little oak? there’s something else towards the finish, a lackluster wateryness that is unappealing. a little heat and plenty of gas in the finish. virtually no hop bitterness on the palate. meh, i find myself back and forth between enjoying some of the flavors and wanting more.

ROGUE (2216) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - AUG 28, 2013
750ml bottle. Pours a light golden color with a one finger head that disapates into a ring of light lacing. Aroma is light with, hops, berries and hints of honey. Taste follows the nose, lots of pale malts with a very white wine and honey sweetness. White grapes, honey and a sort of fruity tartness towards the back end. Flavor rises as the beer warms. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation that is smooth and creamy.

jjgmd (2316) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Pours a rusty orange color with a small white head. Nose is fruity and sweet, with definite upfront currants. Taste is too sweet and overwhelmingly over taken by the currants. Finish is sweet, and fruity. Not a big fan of fruit beers, but this is over the top, Quaff Score 5 / 10

zgaier (1979) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Pours a cloudy orange with a beige head and aroma of fruity currants, and yeast. Taste is sweet, lots of currants, fruity notes, ethers, bread, and spices with a yeasty, fruity finish. Wasn’t big on the taste of this brew

what does pearl jam have to do with beer? thought they disappeared a decade ago, then again- i don’t listen to shit music .. . .
pours out a slightly dark gold .. . very light foam .. . light berry and chewed hay- with a horrid rotting cork backbone .. wow! this is terrible!!!!! .. . a toch fry (touch dry) also ... .
this is absolute filth!! .. couldn’t even finish 5oz of this beer- i mean this beer isn’t even that old and it tastes like its 8 years old and sat in the sun.. .oh well, can’t win them all .. . .

Have you ever heard the term "breakfast cereal?" Cereal is any damn meal of the day that I want it to be.
Don’t try to limit my potential
