This is a very aromatic beer. To be quite honest, it smells like weed – reefer – marijuana. We all know what this smells like and it is not something you can mistake. This is the fifth of five beers in Sierra’s Harvest beers for 2014 and is awesome. The ABV is fairly light. The cannabis-scented beer has a melony taste on the first sip that has a citrus finish. While the apricots come out as the beer warms, I cannot fake thinking that this beer does not make me think of smoking weed in high school or college. Sierra does a great job with beers and this one is no different. As the bottle goes down, it gets less palatable, but is a solid beer, just not one you would want to drink more than one of the bombers that it comes in.
