Leviathan Uber-Bock ~ Harpoon

Appearance: deep rubies and garnets under a minimal head. Touch of lace remains. Swirls thicker along edges but not much else changes.

Nose: strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, and rhubarb pie already cooked, than cooled. Plump plums. Nondescript winter spices. Hint of lavender. Homemade black cherry preserves. Brown sugar. Delicate and sophisticated. Angel food cake saturated in all the above.

Palate: mouthfeel is smooth, silky, and delicate. Fresh whipped cream atop angel food cake saturated in fresh supremely ripe strawberry, raspberry, and blueberry. Skinless juicy plums along the edges. Holiday spices. Lavender whispers in my breath. Rhubarb is an afterthought.

Final Thoughts: intriguing; it reminded me in a way of Brooklyn’s Winter Ale. A dessert beer for sure, I’m not quite sure though how it qualifies as an “uber-bock”. Good, but not what I would call to style.
