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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the Pine Box, Seattle. Ruddy brown, gorgeous, foamy head. Big grain aroma, some red fruit, lots of cereal and some whole kernel corn. Corn bread body, some pomegranate, grainy but nice. Not incredibly tasty, I won’t be ordering another glass soon, but super interesting and obviously well put together. Impressive beer

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear copper from the bottle with a fluffy off-white head that dissipates quickly to leave little to no lacing. Aroma of bready malts, slight sweetness, but mostly spices. Taste is peppery, grainy, metallic,, the spices are calmed down from the aroma, and a bitter sweet finish. More balanced than I expected when smelling it, but still pretty out there. Nice to try, but I don’t need anymore.
