One of Brewery Vivant’s three original canned beers, Solitude, pours a deep reddish-brown color with a low head that dissipates quickly. The pour leaves a slight lacing around the glass. Solitude’s dry, oaky and slightly fruity smell gives way to tastes of bread, raisin and caramel. There’s a bit of a spice to this as well that’s just barely evident.
Low-to-medium bodied, the brew holds a slight creamy texture but is otherwise thin. Its well-balanced finish, with a bit of carbonation, makes the brew very easy to drink.
