Postmortem Brew Review
Pale, clear and yellow color.
Candy like sweet aroma.
Bright sweet flavor of pineapple.
No head to speak of as it rose and settled immediately.
Some yeast funk was suspended in the bottom of the glass.
Light bodied and easy to drink though a bit cloying.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Fruit beers. Where does one begin? This was mama Reaper's choice for Mothers Day and so we began the experiment.

Oddly, first it opens like a wine, by unwrapping the foil around the neck with a bartender's tool.  Next, it opens like a beer, using the cap prying portion of the tool.  Lastly, it opens like a wine again by using the corkscrew to pull the plug from the bottle's neck. Makes you worn out by the time it is poured.

This Lambic poured a yellow color with the slightest of a green tinge.  It smelled sweet like soda-pop but without the fizziness. An interesting sweet, low alcohol imbibement for the wife on her day.  She approved.  I didn't get it, but no matter.

So long as mama's happy, then everybody's happy.
