For whatever reason, this beer has improved enormously with the second glass I just poured for myself.
Served in a Hill Farmstead snifter. First glass was clear, this one pours a bit more murky. Lemondae-like appearance with quickly fading bubbles.
The smell does have a hint of burnt rubber and pepper to it, but also some sweetness in there.
Some tartness lingers on the tongue as it goes down. But I would describe it mostly as zesty, lemony, and almost Sprite-like, except more full, pronounced, tasty. A bit similar to white wine. Not overly carbonated.
Mouthfeel is bubbly and pleasant.
I've had better low abv beers. The Alchemist's Shut the Hell Up! comes to mind. Overall, I could imagine drinking a couple glasses of this outside in the heat, but the price is a turn-off. I feel like I am paying for the bottle, and that the presentation works against this particular Bruery beer. A 4/6-pack would be prefered.
Serving type: on-tap
