Shared with Cavery. And it must also be noted, that I am drinking this mainly because Baudelaire is a kick-ass poet.
A: A hot coal shade of red and orange, with a dense cream colored head. Purdy as a picture.
S: The tart scent of cherries, and I am briefly having happy memory spasms of The Duchesse de Bourgogne. I'd be a lying scoundrel if I said I really caught the scent of rose hips. It kind of smells like the rosemary bread they serve at Macaroni Grill, which don't lie, you love.
T: At first, you think you're chugging a sour. Then, here comes Captain Floral. I am still not picking up rose, but again, rosemary bread. Finishes with a fabulous bready taste. Complex and savory, with that hot bread flavor.
M: Crispy and super fizzy. I like anything that makes me think of champagne, so high-five Jolly Pumpkin.
O: I'm completely author-biased, but hot damn if this isn't a crisp and surprising treat. I still never really caught on to all the florals they so lovingly threw into the vat (which I'm sure looked like a really elegant beer hot tub), but who cares? This beer makes me feel happy, happy feelings.
