Sixpoint Express

22 oz bomber courtesy of Grant via Bierkraft. Must have been filled from a tap, so I guess this could be classified as a growler fill.
The appearance is unusual for a Quad. It is very orange. Clouded body and a decent amount of head, lace and retention considering the ABV. A little light for a Quad.
Nose and tastes are extremly fruity. Alcohol is conspicuous by it’s relative absence in both the nose and tastes considering the whopping 11.3. The fruit is not easy to place, but it’s definitely a bubble-gum based thing. The alcohol comes through a touch in the finish, but to be honest it’s not at all overpowering. Sweetness begins to grind a touch after half of the first glass.
Very powerful beer in terms of the ABV and of course this is really a double-edged sword.
Not really my cup of tea and at 11.3 it simply becomes a beer that requires just too much planning and effort for me, without the pay-off of being a great brew.
