10/7/2010: Mmmmm Key Lime Pie. Key Lime Pie seems to be one of those desserts that you either love or hate, personally I love it. Reminds me of going to the Ocean City on vacations with the family.

The nose is full of marshmallow and tart/semi-acidic. The flavor is pretty damn accurate to the name of the beer, lots of tangy lime, heavy marshmallow (which also adds to the mouthfeel), graham cracker is light but there, and there is this semi-earthy thing going on a well. Mouthfeel could be a little lighter but this is probably a result of brewing with actual marshmallows. Overall this is much better than I expected.

Picture of the day: I hate it when this happens.
