The beer pours a reddish medium brown in color. There is a short head of light tan foam. The aroma is floral and yeast esters over caramel malt, a bit spiced. The taste follows the aromas, spicy, floral, caramel, adding in dark fruits and berries. The finish is very bitter. The beer drinks a bit smooth, with tingling carbonation. I don't like the clashing flavors, overwhelming, floral and bitter, with a tang on the back of the throat. I can see where some may quite like this, but it isn't to my taste.
