    Pours cloudy with an inch of white foam on top. Great retention. Spider web, sticky lacing begins immediately.

    Aroma/Taste there isn't much there that is distinct nor makes me believe I am partaking of a beverage that is leaning towards wine. Age? There isn't nothing wrong with the aroma or taste but nothing distinguishes them either. It has the case of the blahs which it transfers to me as well.

    Medium body, maybe more; same for the carbonation. Dry.

    Hope and prayer went out the door with my first sip. There isn't much going on here that makes me want this beer, let alone again. It is muddied and it confused me. No date on the can either. I expect more from Riverlands.
    Enjoy!

Beer Notes
  • Hazy Double IPA with Hallertau Blanc hops and white white grape juice.

    If hazy IPAs are typically a little sweet for you, this beer may be for you. Sauvignon blanc and chenin blanc white grape juice join forces with German hallertau blanc hops to create a subtle, dry, white wine-like experience.
