Can from Edgemont. Smell is dark fruit, raisins, caramel and malt. Dark fruit and malt flavors with spices. Finishes like and sugary malt. Very Belgian-esque. An interesting one.

Pours a Amber color. Has an aroma of coriander and some citrus peel. Flavor is malty and coriander forward. Has hints of citrus and an almost light cactus refreshing flavor. It's not bad but overall just kind of ok. Overall this reminds me a bit of a scotch ale but with more citrus lemony flavor profile. It's a solid beer.

Pretty unbalanced, actually kind of gross. Whatever. It's different? I guess at least try it once... Kind of tastes like a weird candy your grandmother might give you. It could be your thing! Side note - it really opens up as it warms...

A - ox blood red with a generous head which dissipates to a thin cap

S - red grape musk, red wine, some sweet malts

T - some brown sugar, red wine again, some tart flavours, subtle banana on the finish

M - smooth, good body, light carbonation finishes sweet

This beer tastes nothing like you'd expect given the packaging.
Has a yummy malty taste but with an edge. I saw it described as liquid candy but it is not really that over-sweet. Didn't love it the first time but tried it again the next day and it was lovely. Enough flavour to be interesting but not heavy so not too filling.
Now, lets talk about the branding. It sucks. The packaging at first glance gives the impression of a cider or light beer. The name suggests a genetic abnormality but it is an organic beer. The whole branding is an oxymoron so maybe this is a hipster beer and intended to be ironic? Either way it is worth a try.
