Intro: A 1 pint can, canned on 18th September 2020. ‘You’re so jreamy’. Poured into a Holy Mountain tulip glass.
Appearance: A hazy darkish orange colour with a big three finger white head that had good retention and left nice lacing.
Aroma: You get the strawberry and watermelon, but the mix seems to come together as some strange band-aid and leathery mess that I didn’t really enjoy.
Taste: Tart, but not really sour, and there’s fruity sweetness. Strawberry, watermelon, peach gummy rings, and some light citrus notes.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate to soft carbonation.
Overall: The aroma didn’t work for me, while the flavours at first, did not appeal to me. Over time though, I think I grew to appreciate the flavours a bit more. It was ok, but not my favourite in the J.R.E.A.M. line.

Intro: A 1 pint can with some kind of date that is smudged out except for the year 2019. ‘Just like warm apple pie’. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A cloudy dark orange colour with a big three finger white head that had good retention and left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Apple pie filling.
Taste: Lightly sour, tart, baked apple, cinnamon, nutmeg.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: I didn’t think that this would work, but it did, and I like it. Apple pie filling in liquid form with a nice light sourness that goes well with the apple pie spice flavours.
