got this one in a trade with freud. thanks fred!
375ml corked and capped bottle topped with bronze foil. bottled dec 2009. sampled feb 4/2011.
pours a beautiful deep orangey gold, crystal clear and lighter at the start of the pour, darkening and growing hazy toward the end of the bottle. a big bright white head springs up and falls fairly quickly to a thin layer atop the beer. a bit of spotty lace is left in its wake.
aroma is great. cherry, lemon, tangerine, leather and horse blanket. malt vinegar. caramel and toffee. it doesn't really smell sweet, but i feel like it has all that character - caramel, toffee, candy, complex fruity character. light alcohol. white bread and cracker. bit of grain. it has such a bright character too. fantastic.
taste is good. okay, there is a little sweetness here, but not much. orange, tangerine, and lemon. faint caramel. toffee. bit of malt and cider vinegar. horse blanket and leather. bit of spice. perhaps some cherry pit and almond.
mouthfeel is good. fairly light body with a nice dry finish. just over medium carbonation level.
drinkability is great. nice balance. restrained but complex sourness. good depth. a tasty sour.
