Aurora Ale & Lager Stay Out of Malibu!
What the brewers say
“Fruited Berliner weisse with milk sugar; steeped with cardamom, Earl Grey tea, and pomegranate.”
What our panel thought
“Musty-earthy tea on the nose, with a bit of fruit as it warms. Flavor is sweet and spicy—patchouli, a bit of lemonade, soft berry notes. Flavors meld harmoniously. Well executed, unique, creative.”
What our editors thought
“Pungent and spicy red-fruit nose with a bit of herbal bite. Fun, with layers to dig through. The sip is sweet with a strong smoothie vibe, but the punchy sour-fruit notes and touch of herbal dryness give it a cocktail complexity.”
