Thanks to my bro for gifting me a bottle of this.12oz poured into a snifter. The brew appears a copper orange with yellow around the edges. A tan finger of froth leaves parches of lace sticking to the glass.

The aroma has herbal hops with a bit of floral component and fruits coupled with minerals and sulfur. A bit of toasty grain is noticed mingled inbetween the hops. Overall not bad smelling.

The taste is mineral-filled with some bitter rindy fruit flavoring. Sulfur and cheese is there coupled with some toasty grain backing. A contrasting floral flavoring of hops lingers in the mouth. Unfortunately the main character throughout this brew though is minerals.

This is medium bodied and modestly carbonated. It is worth a try but not something I would return to if given choices.
