Tap @ HUB... Poured a deep ruby with a thin white head that dissipated quickly. Aroma is sweet and tart with malt and fruit. Not a lot of hops in this beer, syrupy and a wonderful malt complexity that is bitter and sweet. Very well balanced and wine-like flavors that lend to caramel and a smooth finish.
