good looking beer in the glass tight half inch off white head holds up well against the cloudy deep amber beer and lots of sticky lace to the finish. nice fruity, spicy aroma lots of malt in the taste which is complex and balanced. smooth medium mouthfeel just adds to that great taste. just wish they had it in a 12oz bottle instead of a 22oz or growler.

A very solid beer. Pours a hazy almost orange color with a nice head. The smell had some citrus hops to it, but also a fruity scent, maybe plum on the nose. The taste was pleasant, with fruity sweetness in the beginning with a clean semi-sweet finish. The mouthfeel was a bit more fizzy than I liked it overall, a very nice beer to just sit and drink.

On tap at Horseshoe Pub in Hudson, MA.

Darker and maltier than I expected but still very good. Malt and dark fruits dominate the nose and flavor. A faint hop presence but not enough by my standards to be considered an APA. Maybe an EPA. Fruity and tasty enough to get good marks, in my opinion. Fresh, clean, smooth. Another well-crafted beer from Berkshire.
