Pours a slightly cloudy medium amber color with a huge frothy tan head. The head settles down to a quarter inch with thick sticky lacing.
The aroma is big on the dark fruits, raisins and prunes with a sugary sweetness. A fairly big citrus aroma is noticeable as well.
The taste is similar to the aroma with the a big citrus flavor showing up on the start and following with a blend of citrus and dark fruits. The dark fruits continue into the finish with the citrus still holding strong and makes for a big part of the after taste. Some spice shows up near the finish and stays for the after taste with some fairly bold bitterness.
Medium to heavy body with medium carbonation. Sticky and sweet on the lips with a smoothness on the palate.
Overall, a tasty brew. Lots of bold flavors with the citrus and hops creating a nice balance to the sweetness. A hoppy barely wine which is not the norm, but well done and very enjoyable. Try one!
