look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Aroma: orange zest, herbs, cinnamon, nutmeg and plum wine. Appearance: see through copper with a thin foam top. Taste: grape juice overtones with fairly complex notes of slick molasses, plums, figs, sweet orange peel, saffron, herbs, resinous hop oils and graham cracker malt base. Overall, this is a very interesting beer with a huge grape fruit juiciness to it. I can also taste the honey and it works well with the graham cracker tasting malts. Very unique beer. A rating.
