Pours clear copper with a thin fizzy head. Aroma of fruit, honey and spices. Taste is oddly not that sweet given fruit and honey that’s still quite prevalent. Certainly unusual.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap @ Black Bottle. Pours a hazy copper orange appearance with very little head. Funky fruity, quite spicy, big pomegranate, slightly nutty aroma. Flavor is really dominated by notes of pomegranates and raspberries with a hint of olives. Not a big fan.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Barcade, Brooklyn tap ($7): Pours clear copper with a small head... whatever there was dissipated quickly. Aroma is Dr. Pepper, herbs, sugar, early 1900s patent medicine, and pomegranate. Taste is somewhat sweet. It is kind of a hodgepodge of everything mentioned above. My girlfriend found that Dr. Pepper was one of the main things going on. Complex, but weirdly balanced. I didn’t get any pepper or nuts in this.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Pours almost clear medium copper brown with a very very thin head. Tastes like pine, flowers, grassy, roasted. Very complex and strange. Medium body and low/medium carbonation. Smells like herbs, malty, musky, rotten.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
There is a flavor in this beer that is both awesome and totally foreign to me. Maybe it’s the "tree resin (think Myrrh) "

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a lovely clear bronze with a thick but very effervescent light tan head. Sorry, point off there. Aroma has malty, hay, grape juice and subtle yeast notes. Flavor seems a little different with each sip - malty, yeasty, wheaty, hints of caramel and horehound. Texture, though, leaves something to be desired - smooth, but lacking fizz or thickness. An interesting beer, nonetheless. Let it "bronze" your palate.
