Draft at Good Dog. Tulip. Hazy orange amber with a lasting fizzy ring. Some dark toasted wheat flavors off the nose but tastes much juicier than expected. Amber red fruit. Plum pudding. Celery stalks. Blood oranges. Fizzy figs. Burnt mangoes. Apple plum wine. Medium malt caramels. Some black pepper finish at the end. Unusual mix.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle. Pours translucent copper color with a two finger white rocky head that falls quickly. Smell is very sweet with some banana, licorice, honey, and floral notes. Taste was a bit grainy, toasty, nutty, with caramel malts and a touch of honey sweetness, bittering pomegranate essence, herbal hops. Medium bodied with high carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
reddish pour not much head. Aroma of big nutty barley, honey, and pomegranate. tastes quite acidic sour, complex cola-like. Somewhat perfumey. sweetness is well restrained with significant bitter on the end coming from the gentian. sorta like a pom-tini old fashioned crossed with a beer if that makes any sense. Someone else will really love this beer. I just appreciate it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Hops and Pie. Pour is clear amber with a small white head that quickly dissipated. Dark fruits, red licorice, sweet caramel, corn, floral, earthy, husky, straw, and bready aroma. Taste is corn, dark fruity, cherries, light honey, hay, lightly vegetal, caramel, and spice. Slick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Really kind-of messy and not my favorite DFH release.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A perfect example of Sam getting a wild hare and traveling across the world to make a beer. Actually, it works. It’s not awesome but is interesting. It seems to lean toward witbier characteristics without the same color profile. Fruit and spice are up front. The color is copperish with an average head. Medium body and good carbonation. There is a lot going on with the flavors and its tough to identify most. Some nuttiness, cinnamon, citrus, wheat and yeast. Hard to categorized.

This beer has some intense flavor that makes it a sipper. It’s very wine-like, with a taste of cherry-grape and, yes, the pomegranate is evident.

Bottle. Pours transparent amber with slight, quickly dissipating tan head. Aroma of caramel and something like root beer. Taste of mixed fruit and carbonated like a soda.
