Virginia

3.53/5  rDev -3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

The beer poured an amber or orange color, somewhat cloudy, with very little head. What head was there was not too thick and left quite quickly. The scent was citrus, sticky, fruity and somewhat harsh. The taste was the same, quite malty, somewhat hoppy and there was the taste of citrus and dark fruits. The alcohol does bite, so beware. Overall a nice flavor. Quite bold.

3.83/5  rDev +5.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A - cranberry, plum colored, almost a red/plum wine

S - alcohol, plums, figs, dates, honey

T - very sweet, can taste the alcohol but not overwhelming, fruits are darker ones - plums and figs, maybe some berries

M - sweet, sharp from the alcohol, medium bodied, barely any carbonation

O - Very sweet, the dark fruits are nice, taste of plum and the figs/dates are rather different, but its almost too sweet at times. A sipper.
