Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.
A nice pour delivers a blood orange to red body, and fairly opaque. Head is off white and makes even bubbles with large clumps and some soapy like retention, capping off at about 3 fingers tall.
Nose is a bit biscuity, with some caramel sweetness. Lots of dough and cookie like sensations. Not particularly hoppy either.
Palate comes with a mild grapefruit aroma, and an interesting finish. Front forward palate hot with a nice grapefruit bitterness. A bit of a wet body but some good caramel malt sweetness seems to easily get through. Weird finish though as the beer almost feels stuck in my throat. Nice mix of juiced grapefruit on this which really gets quite stuck in the mouth a bit. Slightly dry and grainy finish after some time passes.
A very interesting but odd tasting brew, certainly worth trying.
