Lent Season is over, but it's not too late to try this beer. 750 ml bottle, on to the beer:
Poured into a tulip, no exploding bottle here. The head is big, fluffy, and creamy in texture. Underneath sits a pretty golden blonde with haze in the body. Looks great. Smells great too. A mix of dry rustic flavors. There are notes of leather, apple skins, pepper, lemon rind....I could sit back and inhale for awhile.
Surprisingly light in flavor, yet very easy to kick back and drink on. Dry and rustic without the imported drawbacks, just the way the style should be. Slightly fruity, but with a kick of wool and leather blanketing the palate. Mild pepper flavor too. There's a light touch of ripe candied apricots. Oh, and there's the brett, with a sour lemon-like pucker. Finishes very dry, with the rye lingering on.
Oh. My. Goodness. I am impressed by Patrick Rue, again. I expected this to be really good, but I am floored by this offering. I can't find any flaws with the beer's flavor and feel. As for drinkability? 750 ml is not enough! Good thing for growler refills, but I will have to do it soon before this year's supply runs dry (no pun intended).
