Bottle into a tulip.
First thing to note here is that I am a "yeast in" guy. So I poured the majority of this, then sloshed the rest around to break up the yeast before adding it to the mix.
A : Pours a solid burnt orange-ish yellow color with a frothy one finger head. Minimal lacing. Inviting color, very hazy.
S : Yeasty with malt and some floral to fruit tones of citrus. Hard to decipher what specifics from the smell alone.
T : Big brew. Yeast is upfront but quickly subdued by a heavy peach, apricot, orange fruit flavor that gives it a very crisp bite in between. On swallow you get a strong brush of malt as the citrus tingles the top of your mouth. This one is complex as there are some underlying spice notes as well, but the are overpowered.
M : True to the style, this is a big brew, so very heavy. The bottle fermentation gives it such robust carbonation that it feels as if the brew grows and grows as it lays in your mouth.
D : I love em, but two or so is the most for me do to the higher ABV, and the very filling nature of the brew.
