Split a bottle with Stopper the other night. Poured at cellar temp into a snifter.
Beer pours a chestnut color with dense fizzy off white head of 1 cm that fades to a sturdy surface layer. Aroma is fruit dominated with pear and berries coming through. Not much malt nose and is more of a wine aroma, generally sweet. First sip reveals an average to light body with fine spacious carbonation. Body may be a little thinner due to the honey.
Flavor is sweet and fruity like the nose advertised, I get tart cranberry and general fruit, again, pears. Not any hints of the 10% abv on this bottle.
Be ready as this doesnt taste like a modern beer, but is enjoyable as an alcoholic beverage and is very easy to drink.
