3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a 750ml bottle into a Spiegelau tulip.
A: Strong currants and berry notes with a hint of pomegranate. Delicate bready sweetness sweetness in the back.with pineapple esters.
A: Bright, clear orange under a bready off-white head which dissipates slowly and leaves minimal lacing.
T: Like the nose, fruity, like currants, with a solid bready, yeasty malt backbone. Strong frozen currants notes in the finish.
P: Medium-bodied with a slick texture and average mouth-carbonation,
O: Different. Initially, proroguing as the fruity currants are a relatively unfamiliar taste. Smooths out as it warms, I certainly love to concept of a tribute beer, so much so that it carries the flavor somewhat.

a soft vanilla flavor to begin. very soft. some citrus notes as well. maybe more of a limeyness than a lemon. softer flavors too. pear and a little oak? there’s something else towards the finish, a lackluster wateryness that is unappealing. a little heat and plenty of gas in the finish. virtually no hop bitterness on the palate. meh, i find myself back and forth between enjoying some of the flavors and wanting more.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle. Pours a light golden color with a one finger head that disapates into a ring of light lacing. Aroma is light with, hops, berries and hints of honey. Taste follows the nose, lots of pale malts with a very white wine and honey sweetness. White grapes, honey and a sort of fruity tartness towards the back end. Flavor rises as the beer warms. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation that is smooth and creamy.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a rusty orange color with a small white head. Nose is fruity and sweet, with definite upfront currants. Taste is too sweet and overwhelmingly over taken by the currants. Finish is sweet, and fruity. Not a big fan of fruit beers, but this is over the top, Quaff Score 5 / 10
