3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Saturday afternoon football and beer crew. First impression here is that the pomegranate hits in a unique way with its distinct bitterness. Maybe i’ve been hanging around babies too much recently but I can’t get past the aroma I am experiencing without thinking of other very unfortunate baby related events. Flavors and textures more than makes up for it though. Slightly and nicely tart. Very dry finish. Every sip brings out something new which is a hallmark for me of a truly incredible beer. Pours a murky dull orange color. I’d give it a higher score except for my hang up with this aroma. It’s probalby only me though with this since no one else today got the same thing.
