Dont hate because its from TJs! Unlike other Trader Joes products (see Chuck, Two Buck) this is actually quite tasty and satisfying. Pours a reddish color with medium off-white head. Flavor of yeast, roasted malt, candi sugar, coriander, and some cherry. Fairly sweet and well spiced. Not bad, not bad at all.

Remarkably surprised with how tasty this was. Had the spices I enjoyed when it was fresh, but had this new layer of sweet tangy cherry. Very carbonated and lively. I wish I had saved more.
