Terrapin Gamma Ray

Having been asked to re-consider my review, I took another look at my notes and came up with the following adjustments.
Here we go with #3 in the Side Project series. Somewhat disappointed by the first two in the series so I hope that this is better.
A viscous looking pour that likes like a golden, honey colored Hefe. Small head and not much lace. Smells like a Hefe too. Slick mouthfeel. Some cloves in the nose.
On to the taste. Medicinal wheats and a warming finish. Dry, alcoholic aftertastes. Quite sweet that I would not describe as honey based, but it’s certainly sugary. The honey is more obvious in the appaearance in terms of color.
Drinkability is very poor for me. In fact, half the bottle was a drain pour. I just don’t want 11% beers in that quantity very often and the sweetness is just too much even for me, a person that enjoys sweet brews.
(Being VERY careful not let the following effect my review of THIS beer, I think it is a dreaful shame that Terrapin has not used the Side Project series to showcase a sessionable, simple bitter or at least something with a more reasonable ABV. that would be a refreshing change).
