Great looking beer with a white head and a murky body. The aroma is fruity, strong and fermented, and the flavour is slightly rich but still light with a hint of bitterness and a sweet finish. Overall a reasonable beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Roman’s Pub. Lasting fluffy off-white head. Dark ruby body. Has a fruity spice aroma... mostly peach, pear, and a bit of white wine. Carmelly peach rind taste, figgy, and a light pear finish. A touch of yeast and some resiny sweetness in the body. Pretty good, but the sweetness seems a little much at times.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2005 From the bottle this pours a deep brown color with an explosive, soapy tan head. The head stays around for the drink, thickly coating the glass. The aroma is of caramel malts, dark fruits, and some spiciness. This is very soft in the mouth. The taste is yeastfully fruity atop a solid caramel malting. The alcohol, even at 8% abv, doesn’t really make its presence known until it gets into your system. This is a very smooth drink with a clean, quiet finish.
