3.05/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into an american shaker pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear orange tinted amber with a 3 finger tan colored head.

Smell: This is the part about the beer that really throws me for a loop. While there are moderate amounts of toasty malts, there is a deeply and overwhelming fruity aroma full of black cherry, plum, dates and a lot of medicinal scents. It almost reminds me of cherry cough syrup. Not a good way to start.

Taste: I'm really glad the taste of this beer didn't follow the nose. There's a prominent grassiness from the hops, but that is soon followed by a caramel toffee sweetness that balances it out nicely. Once you swallow is when those darker flavors start to show themselves in the taste, and the beer definitely finishes well with a pleasantly deep fruity aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Fizzy.

Overall: In it's entirety it would be hard to call this a bad beer. The flavors a deep and complex, but it's also very sessionable and easy to drink. The flavors present aren't really my thing, but I know some people who might be into a brew like this. Probably for someone who is just getting into craft beer.
