Bottled 3rd of November 2011. Opened November 25 2012.
APP- Cork shoots off the bottles as soon as the cage is loosened. Some gushing. Crystal clear gold with large sudsy head that fades fast.
Aroma - fresh crisp apples, candied pear, only the slightest whisp of acetic twang. floral lilac notes, very soft and restrained. Not super complex but seriously enticing.
Flavor- The first thing that strikes me is the lovely fresh grain flavors that so rarely pop out in these beers. Brisk cracked wheat, doughy, tart, with a nice bright but lightly toasty barley husk note. Possibly this is a character helped along by the oak. Honey suckle and white tea notes just rarely break through a refreshing tartness. Again, not complex, but very nice. Suggestion of nutmeg, again, probably oak-derived.
Mouthfeel- Not searingly acidic nor bone dry. Medium-light body with lively carbonation. Sweet and sour finish. medium-low tannin plays a big role in this beer. Long funky aftertaste.
