425. He'Brew Genesis 10:10

I've been wanting to try a He'Brew beer for quite sometime, but I've never seen them at Downtown Wine & Spirits. A couple days ago I noticed several bottles sitting in a small dispaly at shin level. So I picked up a bomber of Genesis 10:10 and a bomber of Bittersweet Lenny's R.I.P.A. The label of Genesis 10:10 says "10th Anniversary ale brewed with our chosen specialty malts, hops, brewers yeast and pomegranate juice." I let this warm slightly and served in one of my New Belgium glasses.

Beer Stats:
Brewery: Shmaltz Brewing Company
Alcohol: 10.00%
Serving: Bottle, 22 oz.
Style: Fruit Beer, BJCP Style Guide

Appearance (4.0): Pours a clear, deep oarange-ruby. A thick, sudsy, off-white head eventually fades to a thin film, leaving patchy lace.

Smell (4.0): Fruity pomegranate, caramel malts and light hops.

Taste (4.0): Sweet malts and fruit upfront are met almost immediately by a strong hop bitterness that mingles with the fruity and malty sweetness. Eventually the the bitterness becomes dominant in a juicy hoppy finish.

Mouthfeel (4.0): Medium-bodied, tingly carbonation, light oiliness.

Drinkability (4.0): Flavorful, high alcohol is well hidden.

Overall (4.0): This is a very nice fruit beer. The pomegranates contribute fruitiness and sweetness to balance the hoppy bitterness without dominating the flavor profile.
