Single bottle, poured into a perfect pint, while listening to the leak of Lightning Bolt. 10/14

Pours light copper, light bottom to darker top. 1/4 inch white foam. Sits atop. Light fruity nose, must be the currants. Light malty flavor, good fruity back. Citrus in there. Really good, nicely balanced. Worked for me.

Bought 2 bottles of this. Had each time PJ last played in Philly. Had my last one last night as PJ played once again.

Think this beer is average at best and likely the reason DFH supposedly retired it. Pours gold in color with okay head and suspended particles throughout. Smells of currants but that's about it. Pretty tame otherwise. Tasted pretty bland and usual - not quite off-centered enough for DFH. Felt easily drinkable but was completely letdown by a commentarive beer for one of my favorite bands. Needs more character or spunk like the band.
