Served from 12 oz bottle into Corsendonk chalice.
Pours a bright yellow gold...clear...modest head of different size bubbles.
Aroma of melon rind, rhubarb, hay, candy sugar (though I doubt it's in there), subtle medicinal but this is dated 10/3/12, I'd say a tad beyond it's fresh prime.
Significant carbonation and big mouthfeel.
Flavors of citrus hops, cream of tartar, rich malts, alcohol...lets let this open a few minutes...
OK...8 minutes or so later!...small head, melon rind & hay aroma, rich, full body with lots of hops and significant malts.
I've been drinking this and most FW beers for years...picked up a case of the anniversary in 2007, have had Union Jack on tap, in a 22 oz, and in these little bottles. All in all it's a brilliant hop monster...lots of body and hop richness for a hop head, but enough malt and alcohol to make it stand out. While there's some melon and cream of tartar, the malt and hops balance these like peanut butter with jelly! There's a bold balance that's satisfying.
