Picked up another 1 liter growler today at Stone Brewing World Bistro And Gardens - Liberty Station after diggin' the one I got the other night so much! Poured into a Delirium Tremens branded tulip glass.
Pours a fairly clean light copper hue with golden edges when held up to a light source, decent off-white head that lingers for a few sips, giving way to nice lacing in my glass from start to finish. Smell is green apples, peppercorns, light malt, tons of winey barrel goodness, and a nice amount of sweet and fruity Belgian yeast funk. Flavor is on point with the nose but steps it up as far as balance. Perfect blend of 3 types of ale, woody wine barrel, fruity yeast funk, and just a hint of mild bitterness from the hop. This brew should seriously have wine makers shaking in their boots - you could never capture this perfect balance of wine and beer flavors/characteristics in any other fashion other than brewing a fine ale such as this. Mouthfeel is silky smooth with perfect carbonation for the style, mildly bitter, finishing extremely dry and clean.
By far my favorite Mixtape to date!
