IM sampling a cellar temp 12 oz bottle poured into a snifter. The beer pours a bright clear copper hue with a bleached white head of .5 cm that fades to a sturdy edge layer fairly quickly after the pour.
The aroma is slightly tart almost like a Flanders Ale. Didnt expect that from this beer. There is also a bit of graininess and that is about it, with the nose being fairly mild.
First sip reveals a fairly light body with fine and tingly carbonation that tickles my palate after each sip. The flavor is sweet grain and a bit of light fruit with maybe white grape or white wine notes. Finishes with a tartness overall but still a mild piece here. The beer is an easy drinker, but the tartness could make it slightly less sessionable.
I enjoy the beer but wouldnt chase it down and not sure I would want more than one at a setting since the tartness is purging my palate.
An okay beer but not something outstanding and the tartness may turn off lots of other folks at the onset of a sampling.
