Large - huge bubbles rise like clouds over a parched corn field. They evaporate quickly to a thin covering, then slowly, ones-and-twos at a time the bubbles pop. All that separates me now from this golden orange challenge is a halo of bubbles, and wary anticipation.
Smells very orange, very fresh wood, almond and coconut, canteloupe, green fruits, and damp laundry piles.
Tastes of fresh coconut shavings, dry almond macaroons, raw peanuts, crabapples, gooseberries, rhubarb. Very dry, like licking oak planks sanded smooth. So little residual sugar; just a touch of green honeydew melon, and not quite ripe at that! Kaffir lime, lemon thyme, wild oregano... Herbal aftertastes abound, and leave pebbles under my tongue. Very dry pebbles. More then puckering, I'm thirsty, but wary lest I challenge my constitution too aggressively. I feel I have to allow this beer to encounter my body like two strange dogs meeting for the first time. I may not move for an hour. As I sip this I feel as though I were passing a comfrey leaf across my tongue. The sourness builds like licking a lime, over and over. This geueze plays the trumpet!
