adamjackson (809) – Canaan, New Hampshire, USA – NOV 11, 2012

Acquired in a trade. 2010 batch, bottled in 2012. HUGE gusher. Lost half the bottle. Poured a glass out of it and a minute later, bubbles came out of the bottle again. Never had a half full beer continue to bubble over the neck.A – Murky plum / amber brown. HUGE head of 10+ fingers had to pour insanely slow. Decent lacing head was purple white.

S – Tart grape skins on the nose, floral and blackberry scents as well. Some breadiness.

T – Nice up front bright raspberry tartness. The middle is an earthy light juicy where the hibiscus comes through. Finish is this very mild cherry and plum taste. Lots of low acid fruits come through and it’s a nice solid drinkable beer.

M – Medium body, tons of carbonation but the mouth feel is great.

O – I like this beer a lot. Drinkable.
