Taste & Aroma: Dark fruits and malt are here. They smell great. This is a sharp perfume this beer’s wearing. No, that’s not an atomizer. That’s a great grain bill. The flavor is just as elegant and delightful as the aroma. It is almost a mirror image. The dark fruits at the start are welcoming and bright. There’s a sharp tart bite at the end with a lingering maltiness that’s oddly bright.  I’ve not encountered this in a beer before. I love it. Solid aroma and solid flavor are here.

Final Analysis: I love this beer. I aim to obtain more of Crown Valley’s portfolio of beers at the soonest possibility.
