4.13/5 rDev -4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
hazy orangy brown in color, 1 finger creamy head with good retention with a thick lace around the rim of the liquid
smell is very fruity with raisins, cherry and a green grape aroma. notes of burnt sugar and cranberries are also present.
the beer almost has a spicy quality to it, fruity flavors up front with the spice, these flavors fade quite quickly with the slight bitterness and an almost champagne like flavor taking over at the finish. Although it smells sweet after the initial sweetness the beer is pretty dry.
Medium in body and pretty high in carbonation, I'd never guess it was 9 percent abv by its taste and texture, the carbonation lend this beer a smooth quality and the dry finish kinda cool.
Drinkability is above average, the flavors and texture give this beer a pretty unique quality for me and this beer is certainly out of my comfort zone, that said i definitely want more!
