look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – Poured a lighter brown color with some orange highlights. Upon pouring there is a two finger off white head that has a good level of retention, eventually fading to give a nice level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a sweet chocolate and a caramel smell. Mixed with this is a lighter roasted malt and wheat aroma.
Taste –The taste starts out with a wheaty and roasted flavor. As the taste advances, a chocolate flavor enters the taste. The chocolate starts out sweeter with notes of a caramel nature mixed within. It then dries out some as the caramel fades. While it dries out, it again then sweetens as a citrus flavor comes to the tongue near the end of the taste. At the end a somewhat off chocolately citrus wheat flavor is left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the just below medium side with a carbonation level that is slightly higher than average. The lighter body did not go well with the chocolate flavors of the brew, but the carbonation at least made it quicker drinking by not accentuating the more off mix of chocolate, wheat and citrus.
Overall – Not a beer I would likely take on again. The flavors just did not transition or even go well with each other. Not my thing.
