First thing I noticed when I picked up the bottle... 11.2% ABV. Obviously something changed since it's been 10.5% since I can remember. Upon first taste it seems much more malt forward and fruity than I remember but also dryer if that makes sense. I get some slight hop flavor in the finish, but it's mostly malt, fruit and booze.
Not saying I dislike it, but it's definitely different. Reminds me of an english barleywine.
