This pours a ruby brown color with tremendous foam that dies down into a crisp layer. Seems like an interesting brew—certainly the appearance is nothing like what I had expected from an (ostensibly) wheat beer.
The aroma has a noticeable roast followed by an almost lactic hint of tartness, like a milk stout.
While the aroma was engaging the taste didn’t match up.
While roasty & smooth with rough edges that have that characteristic wheated sweetness it just didn’t come together. Unfortunately, the flavor collapses as it warms. I went from liking this brew to disliking it to finding it ok. But it’s not one I’d have again.
