ACBF pour

A-Pours a semi-hazy, pale orange hue. Big, creamy head.

S-Hard beer to describe, especially in the nose. It's got a sort of vanilla and fruit combination to the nose. Yeast must. Some lemons and even some medicinal notes.

T-The yeast, or yeasts I should say, have a very unique flavor that is rich. I personally get a bunch of vanilla with a fruit medley pairing. A mix of lemons and pears. Slight medicinal flavor. Musty and very tangy. It's also sweeter than I imagined it being. I think of sweet dough with fruit mixed in.

M-Full bodied and very creamy. Alcohol is fairly noticeable. Lots of bubbles.

O-Have been wanting to try this one for quite some time. It's very interesting but I wouldn't want to spend the money on a whole bottle.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

750ml bottle poured into a pilsner glass.

A: Dull golden color, slight haze. Massive rocky white head. Tons of thick foamy stickage.

S: Musty yeast, downplayed white pepper phenolics, bready and biscuity malts with light toasted notes, white grape skin, herbal hops.

T: Yeasty and musty. A touch vinous with hints of white grape. Hit of alcohol. Herbal hops. Maybe some lemon. Modestly bitter. Bready malt base is actually fairly sweet. Subtle tartness. Semi-sweet malt tastes start to lose ground to the bitterness in the finish.

M: Fat medium body. Slick and round in feel. Large bubbled carbonation has less bite than expected.

O: Sweeter than expected, and with a larger malt body. The yeast complexity is nice. Maybe a brut version would tickle my fancy a little more, but as it stands this ain't bad.
