3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the Brewpub. Pours a ruby color with a small head. Aroma has dark and candied fruits, mild bitterness. Flavor follows suit and adds a very mild vanilla and lots-O-ABV. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a earthy bitter robust and warming finish.

Dull brown, no head. Malty accent with a dash of alcohol. The palate is sweet, simple, with lots of alcohol. Typical wheat wine, strong but aimless.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sake like nose. Honey and sweet liqueur join the sake with some fragrant flower petals. Low carbonation, almost flat. More sake rice in the mouth. Very sweet with tiny bit of butterscotch. Decent enough.
