2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy brownish-amber, aroma is tart, lightly fruity. Tart, muddy malts and a yeasty finish. No idea what they’re going for here. I know BdG is a meaningless style term, but this doesn’t seem close to any BdG I’ve had, so I really didn’t get this one at all.
