3.96/5 rDev -0.8%
330ml bottle into a goblet.
Pours a slightly hazy dark brown although I did let a bit of sediment slip into the glass. Solid one finger off-white head with very good head retention. Lacing was just so-so.
Aroma is extremely fruity, even more so than other BPA's I have had. There is almost a tropical character to it but quite a bit of cherry thrown in. Also some peach and peppery spice. Quite nice.
The flavor carries over the fruitiness from the aroma with peach and cherry along with quite a bit of pepper and coriander. Nice bready malt in the background that plays nicely with the fruit. Very dry mouthfeel with abundant prickly carbonation.
Overall, this is a very good BPA although it fall a bit short of being outstanding. I love the fruitiness but the malt could be turned up a bit. All in all, though, a good beer.
