Thank you Vinnie for another fine ale. Good bronze to red hue with absolutely no head present...very very minimal lacing sticking around on the side of the glass. It grew on me with an aroma of fruit, malt and spicey sweetness. The taste threw something sour and sweet all at the same time at me. An excellent use of malts and a nice dryness made apparent by the fruity/maltness in the aftertaste made this a most enjoyable delicacy. The carbonation is fairly minimal, but just enough to give the tongue a good fruity prickling. Nicely done.

Tasting Notes from Fall 2000: Citrus, OK - nothing I’d jump out and get (were it ever available where I live)
