Pours a slightly cloudy deep golden color with an orange hue. The pour creates a zesty thick layer of white foam head with great retention. Thick spotty lacing.
The aroma is a blend of sweet fruits with hints of white grape, clove and spices with an underlying bready scent. Some sourness to the aroma as well as a touch of alcohol.
The taste is very similar to the aroma with sweet fruits, possibly grapes or cherries, or maybe apples (I can't put my finger on it), bready malts, cloves and zesty spices. A touch of tartness on the finish with the spicy notes lingering in the after taste. Some woody flavors as well as a touch of honey are noticeable as well.
Medium body with a medium carbonation. Creamy and smooth with a sweet sticky feel on the lips. A touch of chalky dryness on the palate for the finish.
Overall, another tasty and creative brew from Two Brothers. Complex and interesting while maintaining very enjoyable flavors. Worth a try if you can still find a bottle! Try one!
"Well ya see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers." - Cliff Clavin, of Cheers
