Year of New Beer: Meeting of the Minds, Urban Roots Brewing (CA)

Written By: Dion on 04/07/2021

Straight from the fridge, this doesn't seem to have a lot going on aromatically. Given about 15-20 minutes to breathe, however, things begin to pop. First off, it's dank. Very herbal with background notes of pine. Lots of citrus as orange and grapefruit run headlong into more tropical notes of pineapple and passionfruit. Fairly similar on the tongue, with a nice juice profile that first leans soft and slightly sweet before hitting a mid-palate that brings a touch of pithy bitterness, as well as an increase in the weed tones. Has a really interesting berry/grape note on the finish. Really nice beer that rewards a bit of patience.
