(bottled 07/09/14 - poured into an Innis & Gunn fluted goblet)

L: wow! what a beaut!... perfectly clear, pale moonlight yellow.... pleasant tuft of spongy white foam atop, keeping an attractive pad atop till the end... pretty dead on with remarkable lightness to the color... lacking a little lace, but oh well

S: herby-spicy (thyme?), dried grass-y, faintly lemon-lime peel hops... bit of a fresh peppercorn overtone... garden green freshness... mildly soft rose pedal like undertone... whisper of pilsner malt once the other aromatics fade off... overall, quite German

T: light bitter-spicy zip that simmers through to the finish, taking on some of that pepper tone and lemon oil from the aromas... the age has perhaps sanded off a bit of edge and depth in the bitterness, but the core taste is still deliciously intact... nice showing of cereal/semi-sweet granola sitting at the bottom under the hop static above in the aftertaste

F: elegant... miniature tickle of small bubbles up front... silky-soft, smooth, creamy middle and finish... oil resins leaving a lip-smacky film all over... polished smoothness, which suggests more weight, but a large portion of it disappears... could be a touch snappier in the finish, but at this point so what?

O: yet another superb offering from FW... very much on point with the style... I could six this all night
