If I could describe this beer in a single sentence it would be... "Angel Piss in a Glass"

Cold, Fresh and On Tap (keg), It has the perfect mouthfeel, the taste is slightly creamy and buttery...yeasty if you will and this bad boy packs a wallop!!! - Have a DD on hand if you're having more then 2. From Cask it's just a little sweeter and more lacing then a Victoria's Secret Catalog.

This is one of the best things to come from Saint Arnold and is hands down one of the Top 5 Beers in all of Texas, Ever. The only thing SA has done on par with this is Bishop's Barrel No. 1

With all of that said, From a bottle....it's not nearly as good - All the Cream and Butter is gone from it.

I've already had a few beers in me and I've already let this beer warm up. So it's a clear orange-ruby color in this wacky light I'm in. It smells of Brett, dried red apple, sherry, my moustach, a lil alky, and lies. The flavor profile is full of exquisite dehydrated fruits, bubble gum, blush wine, a nice subtle hop-bittered finish, and deception. It's a moderately carbonated medium-leaning-on-full bodied brew. I've never had Divine on tap so this is quite the great as me and babe Amanda sipple off it's teet. Now I'm sure Saint Arnold Brewing Co. made a good sum of cash for the sales of this brew. Funny because this wasn't their recipe. They "allowed" a homebrew winner to have their beer made by this brewery for winning a local competition. Funny cuz to me that sounds like making money off of someone else's hard work. But thats just me

Pours a clear amber color with a very minimal head. Retention and lacing are minimal to non-existent. I get a cherry and raisin aroma. Very appealing. Very big cherry, raisin taste as well. Smooth but with a moderate body and low carbonation. Very good, smooth beer.

Saint Arnold Divine Reserve 12 has a thin, cream-colored head, a brilliant, yet somewhat murky, orange appearance with decent lacing and a lot of tiny little bubble steams. The aroma is faint, but one does pick up fruit juice of some sort. Taste is of fruit, with a surprisingly low bitterness, some faint malt, and that’s about it. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Saint Arnold Divine Reserve 12 finishes semi-dry, mild, and drinkable. No real alcohol presence is detected here. Overall, it’s lovely, and I rate it highly. Get some!
