Citrusy grapefruit taste. Not my favorite winter beer but will do in a pinch. Got from draft.

I normally like Sam Adams stuff pretty well, but I don't care for this one. Just blah all the way around.

Beer looked beautiful and I was excited to try it after a recommendation from a friend. After every sip, I kept tasting an overpowered spice reminding me of the flavor of root beer. Really did not enjoy this one.
