Tart and sweet with flavors of currant, pomegranate, and honey. Has some earthy notes that bring some interesting complexity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

phaleslu (10907) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 5, 2017
Draft at New Day, served in a flight. Pours a clear ruby with a pink-tinted head that settles into a ring. Notes of black currants, cherries, overripe orchard fruit, honey, and florals. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a sweet, tangy mouthfeel. Like the cranberries in Paulding Light, the currants add a nice dimension to the base.
