jrodooo5 (1542) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - NOV 27, 2016
Attractive, complex, & worth a try! Pours a lovely cloudy copper w/ a retaining white head & a bit of lacing. The aroma is a powerful blend of fruit notes. The taste has a big dry fruit kick throughout. It’s fairly complex & quite different. The alcohol is well hidden & overall this is a delightful beer for the season!
