3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Great aroma almost mead like. Pickup caramel, honey and pine. Taste has all those plus a hint of nuttiness. Oily on the palate with soft carbonation and sweet finish, we’ll made beer but not my cup of tea.

Draft sampled at Dogfish Head brewery. Pours hazy brown with a cream tan head. Aroma of malt, wort, caramel, brown sugar, honey. Not sure I’m getting the pomegranate in this. Flavour is moderate sweet and light bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle. Fizzy, gluggy pour. It’s a reddish color with a fizzy head. Aroma of flour, nuts, some caramel and pomegranate. I think it’s pomegranate. I’ve never had a pomegranate. Some earth and clay notes, basement aromas. Flavor has a mild fruity sweetness balances by some woody bitterness and umami flavors. Medium bodied, somewhat thin textured, with lively carbonation. I like this. It’s interesting.

A - Copper color with white head. Didn’t have very much head or lacing.
S - Very aromatic with hits of spices and citrus and wood chips. Very pleasant. Was not very hoppy
T - Had a slight sweet taste. You could pick up the honey and spice notes. It did have a strange after taste. Maybe because of the blend of spices and honey.
M - Very low carbonation. But very drinkable.
O - Overall, very unique and good beer. DFH continues to expand what beer is and what good beers are. This strange combination of spices and honey is another fine creation.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a golden amber, moderate froth, quickly gone. Scent brings big floral notes, flowery honey, light herbal quality, some bready yeastyness and spice, sugar and fruit. Taste has a lot going on as well... strong floral, honey, grape notes, moderate sugar, herbal, spice notes, rounded out with a grainy and bready profile. Medium bodied, some prickly carbonation. Overall, impressed with the uniqueness and drinkability of this one, only thing to question is value.
