says Not fruity, not zest, just pith

January 21st, 2008

Three main thoughts on Furious; first, for a beer that says it’s for a glass the head leaves a lot to be desired.  In fact, the head had bubbled away before I could even take a sip.  Second, drinking it has no taste, only carbonation, it feels not tastes going down.  Third, the flavor is a bit like pine resin and a bit like the bitter pith of an orange.  The flavor is all in the after taste that will not go away, leaving the experience akin to what drinking Pinesol must be like.  If I were to drink it again I’d try it with a citrus wedge in the vain hope of sweetening this hopelessly bitter brew.

    I must say your response confuses me 🙂 I wonder if you got a bad can or had a dirty glass cause I’ve always found Furious to have a nice strong head. In fact tonight when I poured myself another (20 ounce pint glass) I counted all the way to two minutes and the head still was just as strong as when I first poured it. At that point I got to anxious wait any longer and had to have my first sip.
