4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Capped 750 from LetsPour.com. Pours translucent gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is earthy/spicy multiple fruits. Full bodied. Flavor is earthy/spicy multiple fruits. I’d say it’s much more tropical fruit than anything else. Fruit wise. The rest is earthy, approaching barnyard. Love the ginger notes. Finishing so complex that I will not attempt the details. Lovely, lovely, ale.
