Year of New Beer: Astrolabe, Urban Artifact (Cincinnati)

Written By: Dion on 01/12/2020

In the words of the great philosopher, Hozier 😂, "Take me to church!" If you've ever peeled back the foil on a single serve communion cup, then you know what this one smells like...slightly sweet grape, fruit juice-like. On the tongue, it does start out with a bit of a lactic acid kick, producing a bit of pucker. It doesn't take long, however, for a light vanilla to add some sweetness to the grape juice, leaving you involuntarily looking for a wafer and a place to bow your head. Tasty stuff.
