3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap: Ruby hue with a minimal head nor lace. The aroma is RASPBERRY, oh there is some pale biscuity malt, mineral water and slight ginger like spicy tones. The taste is full frontal twangy raspberry (and a little grape too) with a pale malt old school British kilned tone. Light peppery and clove notes with a moderately boozy finish. The mouth feel is somewhat sticky and lush, soft bodied and warming alcohol but not abrasive. It is okay, nothing more other than being different. I guess I hoped for more twang or complexity... wild yeast perhaps?
