This is like a wine for beer drinkers and a beer for wine drinkers. I make that comparison only because my parents are winos and I "forced" each of them to try a glass.

Our initial reactions were indecision mixed with misunderstanding of the pricey tag on the four pack of this I had purchased. It had an OK taste, but nothing really deserving of its price.

After the first round, we waited until after a meal to have another round. Oddly, the flavor of the beer came forth. To me, it tasted like a light white wine with hints of spice and a passable finish. For my parents, it seemed like a light beer with hints of spice and a passable finish.

None of us all that impressed with it, but I wouldn't pass up the chance to try it again. It seems like each successive time I drink it, the flavor improves, or maybe I'm more able to discern its subtle taste.
