Pours a super-hazy rosy dark-orange. Head formed easily in the tulip and has remained a near three-finger constant. Laces, too.
Raspberry skins, floral perfume, floral hops, tart cherry, and pomegranate berry. Nice, after two years.
Raspberries and flora, and I don't mean sour critter flora. Flowery and still somewhat hoppy. Boozy burn in the finish with some lingering white wine-like sweetness, but not 18% booziness. More of that tart cherry/pomegranate and red currant fruitiness in here. Touch of strawberry leaf. Malts have notes of toasted pecan and treacle syrup. Interesting.
Dangerously drinkable. Medium-to-sticky body and feel with a lot of leftover trapped effervescence. You just have to fight the lip-smacking.
Excellent stuff. I miss the hoppier fresh version I've had on-tap, but this was fantastic, too. I feel like this is, at least, close to the sweet spot for this brew.
