“Bubblegum and more bubblegum. There’s an enjoyable deep caramel character, and the fruit esters are pleasant—dried fruit with some tropical notes—but it’s hard to get past those bubblegum esters. This beer could use some additional bitterness or carbonation to balance. As it warms, the sweetness starts to go away and is replaced by more spicy notes.”
