Got this bottle from a generous BA by the name of G311. Cheers buddy.
Appearance is that of a murky brown brew with a slight reddish tint. Tan/creme/khaki head with excellent retention.
Now for the smell... Balsamic, vinegar, lemon, tart cherry, dark fruit(plum) and vanilla.
Oh my, this is complex(and tasty) as hell! Tug of war between sweet and sour. Tartness wins. Underlying vanilla and sweetness really complement this amazing beer.
Perfect MF, Drinks light but has some weight to it. Reasonable carbonation with a smooth and creamy texture.
Very refreshing, not too tart. Great with food or alone. Now I know why this is the benchmark for the style.
