2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
750 ml bottle poured a clear amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, spice, honey, pomeganate, raisin and hazelnuts. Palate was medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of carmel, hazelnut, honey, spice and light fruittiness with a crisp lingering hazelnut finishg. Just plain strange tasting beer! Sam Quit jacking around with your weird vacations and just brew some tasty beers I know you’re capable of!

R G 19. Caramel color with thin head. Smells like the gum in a gum machine. Tastes kind of follows but not quite as sweet. Finish is kind of sweet though.

On tap at Low Brau, Sacramento. Pours reddish bronze with no head and a strange fruity aroma. There is a gruit-like pomegranate and grain flavor wth a honey finish. Complex, unique and pretty tasty.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Green beans and candi nose, weird. Clear copper, thick off-white head. Less vegetal on the palate, tart pomegranate. Odd hint of coffee in the finish, that turns out to be the best thing about it. Pomegranate isn’t something I want in beer. As a matter of fact, I don’t like pomegranate at all.

Pours deep ruby-tinged amber into a tulip. White head with medium retention recedes to mottle surface leaving no lacing. Spring flowers, hazelnut and bubblegum aromas. Dry with sweet honey and pomegranate upfront turning to hazelnut in the middle before a lasting flowery finish.
