Bottle. Poured red with an orange hue and a white head. Aroma was full of a sweet berry, somewhere between a blueberry and a raspberry. Flavor was quite sweet with berry flavor but lacking something to balance the sweetness.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
draft... murky light golden brown, not much of a head at all... the nose is very juicey, almost a bit generic but the blueberries show enough true character to shine through... what I liked about the taste is gone as all the blueberries are replaced with rye, interesting how different the aroma and taste are but a bit off on this attempt
