Interesting. A very different taste. Smells nice, tastes of grapefruit and champagne. A little bit of citrus. Strange aftertaste though.

Was it good, yes. Was it worth the money, probably not. Aroma left somethign to be desired and was a bit nervous...but it had a nice blend of sweet/bitter/sweet taste.

Bottle at the Christmas tasting. A deep golden color with a medium white head. The aroma is sweet yeasty malts and honey. The flavor comes off as a sweet golden ale with some light Belgian yeast. Light fruit, not distinguishable as currant. OK.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours macro-lager style; straw colored and a slight, white head that fades quickly, leaving no lacing. Smells of alcohol (almost Gin-like aroma) and a fruity maltiness. Taste is roasty and fruity, the fruit is a bit rotten tasting though. A slight hint of currants in this, but not much. A little tartness, but not as much as expected. It’s a little hot, with a residual sweetness. It tastes decent, but I would have expected a hell of a lot more from something with DFH and PJ sharing the same label. Seems they like Miles Davis a bit more than they do PJ.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear yellow. Syrupy sweet aroma with some deep red fruit. The currrants are coming through here and follow through well into the flavor. There is an astringent bitterness to the flavor that is not melding very well unfortunately but overall this is a tasty fruity brew. Finish is slightly sweet and syrupy again. Full bodied. Relatively quick on the finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear gold with a white head which dissipated rather quickly. Aroma is citrus, florals and earthy. Taste is sweet with faint bitters which quickly turn sweet again. Mouthfeel is oily and almost creamy at times, which was surprising as it looked as if it would drink thin. Overall I think that this was very good, but as noted the price is a little high and this may be dragging the rating down a bit.
