Purchased at City Beer Store in San Francisco.

A - The beer pours a misty yellow with a foamy head.

S - The smell is a bit sour, but not overpowering. Lot's of sweet fruits, honey to be specific. Lots of spices as well.

T - To echo the sentiments of another reviewer, this beer, to me, tastes very much like a braggot. It could be the yeast strain, as I doubt Vinnie used honey in this brew, but it tastes like a braggot, a very good one at that.

M - Thin to medium body, well carbonated.

D - If it wasn't so hard to find, I could drink this beer very often. Again, I think it tastes like a braggot. For those interested, you might want to compare this brew with Rabbit's Foot Meadery Biere de Miele.
