Strong currant aroma. This beer reminds me a lot of Midas Touch. Head is short lived and clarity could be improved upon. Very sweet taste that lingers on the tongue for quite some time.

2011 vintage, on draft. Smells like white tea, and honey. The taste is bread like, sweet, oranges, lemongrass. Spicy and carbonated, pretty good.

bottle. Golden with big fluffy head. Light body with some sweet currant. Completely one dimensional. This really needs something to balance the sweetness, like a little tartness. Disappointing.

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.

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.
