There is a flavor in this beer that is both awesome and totally foreign to me. Maybe it’s the "tree resin (think Myrrh) "

750ml Bottle Sept 2014. Slight sour beer-like base, resin center, great peppery aroma. I’m a sucker for "ancient" ales. Loved it.

Bottle. As you pour this, at first you think it’ll be golden. But it settles into a red, almost juice-looking thing. Whatever head it started with disappears almost immediately, finalizing the kool aid visuals. The aroma is similarly fruity, but also hints at some alcohol, not unlike some fruit wines or the strawberry syrup at IHOP. This drinks with the ease of something that comes in a box with children’s meals ... sweet, fruity and plain yummy. There’s no way I’d predict there was 8% alcohol in this. Where’s my happy meal?

Aroma: Very complex and winey aromas--dried fruit, honey, berry with hints of earthy yeast aromas.
Appearance: Clear bright amber with minimal head.
Taste: Medium-heavy sweetness with light bitterness and medium sourness to balance.
Palate: Full body, thick oily texture, soft carbonation, long fruity finish.
Overall: Wow! This has so many flavors working with each other and against each other. Every sip reveals something different, but still in harmony with the others. Nothing unpleasant here, though a bit too fruity for my taste. Still, this is really well done.

750 ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy bronze hue with a medium beige head with good retention. Aroma is doughy and full of clovey phenols, honey, grain, fried corn tortilla, earthy. Taste is lightly sweet and savory before turning on a lightly sour note (from the pomegranates, I imagine). Body is a little on the thin side. This is really well made and put together; quite tasty.
