Flavor 8 out of 10
Malt Flavor: grapes
Hops Flavor: HerbalResin
Notes: For one of the best beers in New Jersey, I’m sorely disappointed. Again, this thing sprayed all over, tastes not so great, and costs $7 for a 11.2 fl oz container.
Palate 3 out of 5
Sensation: Drying Warming
Notes: Not a bad finish, but getting there is hard to do. Alcohol not hidden well at all.
General Impression: 10 out of 20
Craftmanship: Interesting, but not to my taste.
Personal Taste: Disliked
Notes: I wished so much that this had been better. It took 20 minutes to open due to the overcarbonation and potential yeast problem, then 5 minutes for cleanup, then drinking it was a bit of a chore, like drinking wine. Lots of better ways to spend $7.
