3.28/5 rDev -0.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Appearance: Pours a dark blonde with a pinkish hue. Light egg white head with some bubbles and minimum head. A drizzling lacing is left upon the glass.
Smell: Smell is sweet and almost grapey, with an nice aroma of fruity yeast.
Taste: This is cool and crisp. Definitely a summer ale. The yeasty fruits linger and bubble in the mouth and leave a tingle on the tongue. The initial taste is fruity and frothy with an almost biscuit like quality. I suppose the fruit taste you get is elderberrys, since the bottle just keeps gushing about elderberrys, but honestly I can’t place it other than to say it is fruity.
Mouthfeel: This beer is crisp and bubbly with a fair amount of carbonation in the initial swig. With the yeasty flavoring it allows for a slightly chewy quality to it while still being light and summery. The after taste is wet on the tongue tip and tingly on the tongue.
Overall: I’m a little biased against this beer because it replaced the Wacko, which is a beer I love, but I’ll be fair and say it is not a terrible beer. It’s a little fruity with its yeast, which is expected for the style. It’s a mediocre summer ale.
