ABV: 8.5% Batch #: 9 Bottled on: 7/16/13 Dude at the brewery mentioned they used a new type of loose leaf tea.
A: Hazy and opaque, deep orange-brown with shades of copper. I like to think it's burnt sienna. Big, fluffy, pillowy, off-white head that settles into some good lace and a bit of retention.
S: Very herbal. Spicy, malty, rich, earthy, sweet, brown sugary, and definitely some loose leaf tea. But I also get some soy sauce and cured meats with a bit of smoke. Hmmmm...
T: Similar to the nose. Strong but balanced flavors that I really enjoy. Top notch for the style. Very little booze shows up. And you can discern the wheat. There's also a very slight hint of the orange peel and some honey. But maybe it's because I knew to look for them?
M: Rich, smooth, sweet, properly carbonated, and so easy to drink. I'd even call it refreshing. Can be a bit cloying after a while, though.
O: Perfect for drinking anytime but it really stands out to me as a fall brew. The flavors and the body call for a bit cooler weather. An outstanding beer by itself but even better for the style.
