Pours a very cloudy, heavy golden color with less than one finger of white fluffy head with decent retention.

The scent was very complex, sweet fruit, likely pomegranate, toasted grains, honey, some notes of alcohol.

Like the scent the taste is also complex. There was the sweet pomegranate flavor, raisins, sweet honey, some bready notes, and a noticeable alcohol presence.

Medium body, smooth and kind of creamy, low to moderate carbonation.

This was like nothing I've had before. Very complex flavor with new ingredients I haven't tasted in a beer before. This might be something I would get again if in the area.

Complete and total surprise on tap.

Pours slightly cloudy amber with very little head.

Tine bit on the funky side--almost trying to get to a sour with the mouth feel without the most of the acid. Esthers come through--pear and dried fruits. Had a little essence of homemade wine. Alcohol completely hidden

I think this one nails it. Really worth a shot --unique. Tasted like very little made today
